GAINS is a learning strategy for all levels of the system. The GAINS vision is engagement of every teacher of students in Kindergarten to Grade 12 in vibrant professional learning networks focused on improving literacy and mathematics teaching and learning.

This embraces both continuity and change.  GAINS is built on the successes of Think Literacy Success, Think Literacy Cross-Curricular Approaches, Me Read? No Way!, Leading Math Success, Targeted Implementation and Planning Supports, and Critical Learning Instructional Paths Supports. We know, however, that bringing to bear all that we have learned so far will help change the system into a learning system.
