Student Support Centre

Student Support Centre (SSC) is a Online-based universal support provided by an EA in Literacy or Numeracy and is offered to students needing assistance in grades 5-12. It is important to note that you do not need a referral for this, you may access the SSC at any point throughout the year. 

  • academic courses - comprehension, higher level thinking, step by step instruction
  • executive functioning (organization, planning, time management)
  • course pacing and accountability
  • navigating Brightspace, Study Forge and Encom
  • building confidence due to anxiety or insecurity

How to initiate support
Talk to your teacher, LS consultant or GA to set up the first meeting to get to know the EA.  After the first meeting, schedule follow up sessions using the EA's calendly link.
Friendly reminder: The student support centre is a universal support and is accessible to all grade 5-12+ students. We ask that you kindly limit weekly bookings to 1-2 sessions and no more than 2 weeks in advance. Should your child need further support, we encourage you to contact the course specialist for booking hours and follow up with your IE case manager, learning support consultant, K-9 teacher or GA.
Support is offered via Zoom and students must schedule a meeting time and attend the service.
