Student Support Services

LEARNING ASSISTANCE

Children are referred to the Learning Assistance program by their classroom teachers if they are experiencing difficulty. Parents will be notified in the event their child is in need of this program. Culminating reports are sent to parents when the students have completed their individualized program.

SCHOOL BASED TEAM (SBT)

Students who are experiencing difficulties academically, socially and/or emotionally, may be referred to  School-Based Team. The S.B.T. will discuss the problem with the teacher and make recommendations as to how the teacher and student might overcome the problem. Parents will be informed of the meetings and may be invited to attend. Regular members of the S.B.T. are: an administrator, the Learning Assistance and Integration Support teacher(s), the school counsellor, the school nurse, the school social worker, and parents who have concerns about their child.

INTEGRATION SUPPORT
Students who have been identified by the district resource team as having special learning needs benefit from additional support services. Services may include additional resource materials for the individual as well as assistance from district support personnel and/or the school’s Integration Support teacher. Identified students will have an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) on file that is updated yearly with input from all personnel involved. Parents are a necessary partner in the implementation of IEP’s.
