Provincial K-3 Class Size Initiative
As part of the collaborative planning process for the five-year implementation of the Kindergarten to Grade 3 class size initiative (20K3), school divisions will maintain a K-3 class size tracker to monitor progress on reducing K-3 class sizes. The K-3 class size tracker is available at each school division website homepage and/or school website.

Bright Futures Fund
In 2011/12, the Manitoba government invested $4 million in the Bright Futures fund to support programs aimed at improving high school graduation rates and increasing access to post-secondary education for disadvantaged and low income students. The Bright Futures fund brings community-based organizations and schools together around a common goal: to address many of the key barriers to post-secondary education that are faced by under-represented students. This is a joint initiative between the department of Advanced Education and Literacy and the department of Healthy Living, Youth and Seniors that was first introduced in 2008.
