Philosophy of Programs & Services
All students have the ability to learn and the right to the best possible education which challenges their learning abilities.
Every student can benefit from and contribute to the school community.
Students shall be educated in a placement which best meets their needs.
Students will be encouraged to be involved in their IEP where possible.
Student placements will be selected from a range of options as listed by the Ministry of Education and our Board; all placements will have the support of parents as required by regulation.
Programs for exceptional pupils are based on the strengths and needs of these students as developed through appropriate assessments, the Identification, Placement and Review Committee process and planning (i.e. Individual Education Plans).
The education of exceptional pupils is a responsibility shared among board personnel, students, parents and community partners.
Everyone involved in the education of an exceptional student should practice effective communication which, concurrently, promotes fairness and respect for those involved.
