I will work collaboratively with the staff at McCanny Secondary School to provide an academic program, as outlined by the Ministry of Education guidelines. wherein all students can be successful. We will make every effort so that all students will graduate, are university ready and become successful members of society and are able to compete in an increasingly complex world in which they will work and live.
