Additional Guidance

Individual Program Plan (IPP) Counselling and Learning Support

An IPP works on providing accommodations and strategies, which supports a student’s learning and/or social emotional needs. The IPP is based on a diagnostic assessment from a qualified professional. It is in the form of a Psycho-Educational assessment and may include cognitive and psychological assessments as well as medical and health related assessments.

Each learner (with or without an identified special education code) has the right to access accommodations (e.g., time, assistive technology, tools, space, equipment, alternative formats), also referred to as instructional supports, that remove barriers to learning tasks and assessment, without consequence to grades.

Process for Requesting a Course Change

Consideration will only be given to requests received via the Request for Course Change 2022 -2023 Form. Please submit it to your Guidance Teacher by email.    Guidance Teachers work with students and families according to the student’s surname.
