Cowessess Community Educational Centre (CCEC) kept students connected to school during the Spring closure with the aid of SSCF’s Emergency Response Fund.
“After the closure, we knew that keeping our students connected to their teachers was a priority. CCEC teachers reached out to the high school students by phone, Facebook and messaging and they discovered that the majority of students did not have a device for online learning. Our CCEC teachers quickly established online learning platforms so that they could provide learning opportunities for their students.”
– Sandy Pinay-Schindler, Director of Education at Cowessess First Nation
With the funding from SSCF, CCEC were able to purchase Chromebooks to lend to all students from grade 9 to 12. This meant that all students had consistent online connection to their education for the previous school year. As the new school year is starting, the Chromebooks will be available for all online learning that has been implemented due to ongoing impacts of COVID-19.
It warms our hearts to know that the students on Cowessess First Nation all have access to their education as a result of this initiative.
