All children need to be challenged, successful, accepted and develop a sense of worth. To meet this goal School District 69 provides support for students who have specialized learning needs that are matched, through a screening process, to available school and district resources.
These resources can include, but are not limited to; support from Educational Assistants, Learning Assistance, Speech and Language support, the Early Reading Program for primary, Occupational Therapy, programs for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, the Visually Impaired and students with social and behaviour challenges.
Our goal is to ensure that all students will be provided with planned experiences so that each student, to the extent of his/her capability, may:
- Be challenged, yet experience success, acceptance, and develop a sense of worth
- Acquire and use communication and computation skills
- Develop critical and creative thinking abilities
- Acquire knowledge and skills in the recreational, physical and cultural domain
- Develop the ability to cope with the changing demands of society
Student Support Services engages a variety of resources in order to meet this goal, including technology as a tool to support learning, and especially networking with community support available through Family Resource Association, Mental Health and other partner groups.
