Instructional Resource Teachers

Crescent Heights High School provides support to students experiencing academic difficulty. Resource teachers can assist teachers and students to develop strategies to meet the specific needs of individuals. Resource teachers are also involved in the creation of Individualized Program Plans (IPPs) which help build an awareness of the learning process in order to help students become more positive and active independent learners. Referrals may be made by students, parents, teachers or counsellors.

Student Services

The Student Services department includes Guidance Counsellors, Instructional Resource teachers, Educational Assistants, International Students Coordinator and our Administrative Assistant. CBE Services (specialists and psychologist) and Community Services are coordinated through this department.

Support for Students at the CBE

Our students’ success is our top priority and we understand that our students live complex lives and that many factors both in the school and outside of school can affect their ability to learn. The CBE offers a variety of services (such as Culture and Linguistic Support, Exceptional and Special Needs, and Psychological Services) to support students, their families and our school, so students can be successful learners.
