Our student services team is made up of teachers, support staff, counsellors and administrators. Our primary goal is to develop strategies and programs for students with special learning needs and to refer students for specific district services when or if necessary.
The following programs and services are available at our school:
Counseling: Social, emotional and academic support for students.
EAL: Provides language acquisition, cultural and social development support for students whose primary language is not English.
Gifted: Programming designed to support the needs of students identified as gifted learners.
Learning Assistance: Learning support for students who have mild to moderate learning difficulties; services include assessment, consultation, collaborative planning and instruction.
Learning Resource Program: Learning support and instruction for those students whorequire adaptations or modifications to the curriculum. Learning Assistance and Learning Resource programs are usually integrated including EAL instruction. Ultimately, service delivery is determined and driven by what is best for the child.
Skill Development Program: Learning support and instruction for students in low incidence special need categories; services include assessment, IEP development, programming and instruction, resource development.
Speech and Language Support: Our speech / language pathologist (SLP) is here every Thursday. Language assessments as well as direct or consultative service is offered.
