What do we do….
We support our children through supporting our staff members as well as the 21 schools in our district. We also provide support to our on-site programs such as: Learning Assistants, Life Skills, Resource Support, Behaviour Support, as well as Reading Recovery.
We strive to ensure that all students feel welcome and included in their learning environment, helping them to reach their full academic, social and emotional potential. We believe that this process is most effective when educators work in collaboration with the students’ families as well as with any community and/or health professionals that may be involved in their lives.
Learning Services aligns itself with the Ministry and School District and operates on the strong belief and practice of inclusion.
Inclusion is defined by the BC Ministry of Education as:
…the value system which holds that all students are entitled to equitable access to learning, achievement and the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of their education. The practice of inclusion transcends the idea of physical location, and incorporates basic values that promote participation, friendship and interaction.
We recognize that each child has a unique learning style, and we therefore provide educational experiences where areas of strength are promoted, and areas of needs and challenges are developed and accommodated.
