Re-entry Support

As you begin to examine the possible options for re-entry, there are a number of areas that Jigsaw Learning Associates may be able to help. Our team is skilled in facilitating conversations and leading collaborative conversations to determine next steps and possible plans for moving forward.

Collaborative Response

A school framework that values collaborative, action focused responses, data-informed discussions, and timely intervention to ensure all students can experience success.

First Nations Support

Our team has experience working with First Nation Educational Authorities to provide supports in a number of areas that honour and respect culture, relationships and indigenous ways of knowing and being.

System Leadership

System leaders require a vast expanse of skill sets as well as the ability to guide and support others. Visioning and engaging in effective strategic planning provides the context for working with teams and moving a system to success.

School Leadership

School leadership is a challenging yet rewarding experience. Supporting school leaders through coaching and mentoring can ensure leadership success, impact and higher levels of retention.


Literacy is a primary focus for all schools and districts. While every classroom and every teacher engages in literacy practices, there is a wealth of learning in providing effective literacy programming and assessment.

Responsive Behaviour Support

Establishing Responsive Behaviour Support ensures positive learning experiences for all. The implementation of a behaviour continuum of supports, behaviour matrix and the focus on establishing routines are all integral components of a responsive behaviour system.

Educational Assistants

Educational Assistants play an important role in every school. Articulating roles and responsibilities of educational assistants as well as understanding the important work they do is integral to how they effectively support students and families. Explore an online educational assistant learning series available for asynchronous learning opportunities.

Inclusive Supports

Providing a consistent, well articulated system of Inclusive Supports is an integral part of how a school ensures effective learning opportunities for all. Scaffolding teams, exploring and advancing the principles of inclusion and articulating processes and structures are important elements of inclusive supports.

Digital Supports

The effective implementation and sustainability of digital solutions in schools can be complex and challenging on many levels. To truly make a difference for the success of students, it necessitates a robust roll-out and coordinated learning plan.

Early Years

The investment in early years is integral to a solid support system across a school or district. Establishing beliefs, shared vision, common purpose and developing collective capacity are all elements of establishing the foundations for early learning.

Beginning Teachers

A teacher's first years can make or break their experience and may influence them throughout their career. Establishing or strengthening your beginning teacher program to ensure consistency will lead to increased efficacy in classrooms as well as staff retention.

Partner Successes

The success of our partners in meeting their goals is a priority for our team! It is exciting to share the substantial successes accomplished by our partners in a variety of areas.
