Community Partners



JDSS has developed a Community Partnership with a number of community groups and agencies with the intent of providing assistance to meet the needs of students in our school.  We would like the public to be aware that part of the partnership agreement includes the availability of office space at JDSS for any of the participating community groups and agencies.  We would also like the public to be aware that each of the community groups and agencies is working under its own particular mandate and legislation, especially in regard to obtaining parental consent for referral.

The Box Project
Through student initiative, JDSS has developed a community partnership with a number of community groups and agencies with the intent of providing assistance to meet the needs of students in our school, as well as making the school comfortable and welcoming to all.  The hub of these services is located beside the cafeteria in a room called “The Box”.    We would also like the public to be aware that each of the community groups and agencies is working under its own particular mandate and legislation which is different from that of the Ministry of Education, especially in regard to obtaining parental consent for referral.

One of the results of this extended partnership is the coordination of all the school and social services within the Guidance Department.  This provides students with confidential access to needed services within a non-threatening environment. To enhance the delivery of health-related services within the school, the health room has been converted to a sexual health clinic staffed by health professionals.  

JDSS Health Clinic every Wednesday from 8:45 am to 3:15 pm
- Confidential Service -
Nurse: Kristi McCracken, Doctor: Susan Grant-Hall
