May 2019 RPT Chair/Coordinators Meeting
As always, May 13 brought Leaders from all 16 RPT's to our bi-annual Chairs and Coordinators' meeting at Humber College. David, Janine, Sonja, Alisha and Phil shared highlights of the past year's successes and looked ahead to the future. Ongoing reliance on rich and transparent data demonstrated ably how SMART goals continue to ensure practices that maximize success for our students, and use resources carefully, strategically and sensibly. Pauline McNaughton and Jeff Piro brought insights from EDU and the newly appointed Executive Director of CODE, Tony Pontes brought greetings and insights. Tony replaces recently retired Frank Kelly and represents an ongoing commitment to the success of CODE and SCWI.
Now in its 22nd year SCWI programs continue to demonstrate remarkable success in inspiring at risk students to complete their high school diploma and continue in career oriented post secondary education. Below are some memories and statistics from past years.
