The Priority Schools Initiative is an after school strategy, developed by the Ministry of Education, that provides funding for the Board to keep school doors open seven days a week, all year long. This enables neighbourhood groups and organizations to bring in their activities at reduced or no cost rates for participants. This is good news for you and, more importantly, for the children and families of our neighbourhoods who benefit from the services that you provide. Priority access is given to neighbourhood not-for-profit groups and organizations who promote activities of healthy well being, community stabilization and/or opportunities for individuals to reach their potential.
