Special Education

Special Education (SE) Program

Our SE Program works with students who receive additional funding to help build specialized programs that aid in their success as learners. Our diverse and robust program is made up of British Columbia certified teachers who specialize in SE education, Education Assistants (EAs) who work directly with students in home, an experienced office support team, and a wide variety of community-based support services throughout the province. If you would like more information on our SE Program, please see this page: SE Program.

Learning Services (LS) Program

We also offer an LS Program for students who are not designated SE students but would benefit from specialized planning and, where possible, some additional support. Some students may have learning challenges that are outside of SE designations; these include but are not limited to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), dyslexia, speech difficulties, giftedness, and written output delays. If you suspect your child would benefit from extra help and are seeking advice with regard to their learning, please contact your support teacher with your concerns. The support teacher will then contact our LS Team to discuss how best to offer support. For more information on our LS Program, please see this page: LS Program.

Individual Education Plan

In addition to a Student Learning Plan (SLP), which all students receive, students in our SE Division and some LS supported students also have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) that outlines specifically how their education program will be adapted to help them succeed. Teachers work closely with parents and other support team members to write the IEP.
