Already a WITS school?
All WITS Programs (WITS, DIRE, LEADS, MENTOR) are now accessed through your school’s paid subscription. This change will help us achieve several goals:
- Increase program integrity
- Provide improved support to WITS Schools
- Enhance training for educators and community leaders
- Create connection between all WITS Schools
- Ensure WITS Schools have quick notice of new or updated materials
- Support regular program assessment and evaluation
If your school uses the WITS Programs, subscriptions are now required in order to be considered a WITS school. In some cases, subsidies may be available. For example, the WITS Programs Foundation is committed to supporting Indigenous communities.
For more on program and subscription subsidies, see here.
How to Subscribe
On the registration page, search for your school using its primary phone number (most schools are on file but if your school does not return a result, then you will need to enroll your school). Your school’s primary contact should be a Principal or someone championing the WITS Programs. Once submitted, we will review your submission, and once approved, you will be able to purchase a subscription and begin to access subscriber-only resources. Every staff account must be approved by the school’s primary contact, and then they will be able to access all of the subscriber resources.
How schools start the WITS Programs
Three elements provide you with all that’s needed to start the WITS programs: a Subscription, Classroom Modules for every class, and a Core Module. A subscription provides schools with access to our online store, where they can purchase all of the modules and classroom items that they may need.
Classroom Modules for WITS and/or WITS LEADS provide each classroom with reminder gifts for students, implementation guides for teachers, posters with social-emotional learning (SEL) themes, and essential resources to involve families. There are Basic and Enriched versions of the Classroom Modules.
The Core Module provides resources and materials for the WITS Programs to succeed throughout your school, including a detailed WITS Resource Guide, (includes a more detailed guide to program implementation and other resources), carefully selected WITS Pick books, signage, and our SEL posters and other items for central areas of the school.
Modules are also available in French for DIRE and MENTOR.
