Getting In, Staying In, Getting Out: A Plan for Post-Secondary Student Success.
Northwest Territories Dept. of Education, Culture and Employment, Yellowknife.
This document presents the framework that Canada's Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) Department of Education, Culture, and Employment has developed to help the province's high school students and adults make successful transitions into and through postsecondary education. The following goals of the province's Student Success Plan (SSP) are listed: (1) foster development of individuals with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to make successful transitions to postsecondary learning; (2) provide adequate personal, academic, and financial supports to meet the needs of the whole learner; and (3) foster development of individuals prepared for work and lifelong learning. The special needs of the SSP's target groups are described. The remaining sections of the document detail the model underpinning the SSP and the policies and procedures, promotion efforts, information dissemination activities, and learning supports to which the GNWT has committed to ensure that students complete the following steps successfully: (1) apply for and gain entry to postsecondary studies; (2) maintain their student status until their program of study is completed; and (3) make the transition to work or further learning upon graduation. The document's three appendixes describe a total of 40 policies, programs, and resources available to assist students at each stage of the model. (MN)
