ESSP (Elementary and Secondary Support Program)

Elementary and Secondary Support Program

The Elementary and Secondary Support Program (ESSP) provides support to the Rainy River District School Board through a unique and important partnership.  The ESSP staff consists of the Indigenous Education Leader, Indigenous Vice Principal at Fort Frances High School, Indigenous Guidance Counselors at Fort Frances High School and Rainy River High School, and Early Literacy Education Assistants in various elementary schools.

The focus is to support Indigenous students enrolled in the RRDSB, and to provide leadership at the provincial, system, and school levels.  The ESSP staff will continue to strengthen relationships with its member communities through community visits, student/parent orientations, bursaries, career advice, as well as other initiatives that help support our learners.
