Student Support Teacher (SST) Conference Concludes

The Honourable David Joanasie, Minister of Education, released the following statement:

“Earlier this month, the Department of Education hosted the first territorial Student Support Teacher (SST) Conference. This conference created a space for SSTs to meet and provided clarity on available and approved resources and equipment.

The Department of Education established and expanded education support services in communities where they were previously unavailable. During the conference, SSTs met with education support service providers such as occupational therapists and speech language pathologists, to enhance their capacity to collaborate in the planning and delivery of support services to Nunavut students.”
