The Teaching and Evaluation Center (T & E Centre) provides programs for students with diagnosed learning disabilities in Language Arts. The Centre provides in-depth educational assessment and programming and facilitates student understanding, acceptance and responsibility for academic difficulties. The Centre encourages and teaches self-advocacy skills and learning strategies, promotes active parent involvement to encourage ongoing success and works with the referring school to provide recommendations that can be used in the student’s individual education plan (IEP).
The programs are currently located at Birchland and Ranch Park Elementary Schools and at Como Lake Middle School. Students attend the Teaching and Evaluation Center daily from 8:25 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. for a period of eight to ten weeks and return to their home schools every afternoon. There are three terms for which schools can apply for their students to attend. Taxi transportation is provided to and from the Teaching & Evaluation Center (if required).
Schools should contact their Zone Coordinator if considering a referral. A District Screening Form is completed by the School-Based Team with all the collected data and then submitted to the Zone Coordinator for the school.
