Northern Schools Hesitant About Tracking System

An education official says he hopes more schools in the north can be persuaded to sign onto a new tracking system for students.


Saskatchewan’s Student Data System was originally launched in 2004 to help the government keep track of student attendance.


It has since been expanded to include grade information and that has some schools hesitating whether to come onboard.


Larry Goldade of the Prince Albert Grand Council says he thinks the new system is useful and could help student attendance.


He adds the importance of having students attend schools can’t be overstated.
