Guidance - Student Success Centre
Every student has different expectations of High School, different learning styles and different needs. Our Student Success Centre is designed and personalized to encourage and assist you in making the most of your High School experience. Our services, supports and programs are student-focused. We aim to provide students with the opportunity to achieve academic success, to get involved in our school activities, to set goals (educational, career, personal) and to give back to the community.
Located on the main floor, the Student Success Centre is here to assist students with their transition into High School, to support them during their time here as a student and to help them prepare for life after High School.
Students can access the following services and programs:
- Guidance Counsellors
- Learning Resource
- ELL Support
- School Resource Officer
- Business Office
- Community Resources
- Credit Recovery and Credit Rescue
The Student Success Centre is here to help and ensure supports are in place so each student's journey through High School leads to a successful future once they leave High School. Appointments may be booked through the Secretary in the Student Success Centre.
Students who are Applying for Accommodations
Parents/guardians of students who require an assessment or reassessment need to follow the guidelines listed below. Joane Cardinal-Schubert High School has very limited CBE sponsored psychological assessment provisions; therefore, a privately initiated assessment is a prudent option.
Ensure that Joane Cardinal-Schubert’s Learning Coach in the Student Success Centre (Linda Floyd) receives all the required documentation; this could include a psychological assessment or a psycho-educational assessment completed by a registered psychologist OR a Physician’s (Audiologist, Ophthalmologist or other licensed specialist such as a Psychiatrist) letter.
If a letter is provided, the following should be included:
- A clearly defined diagnosis or condition (using DSM - Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - Diagnosis/Criteria).
- Indication of the implications of that diagnosis with respect to recommendations for accommodations for student learning.
- A clear statement of the academic and/or examination accommodations that are recommended or prescribed as a result of the diagnosis or condition.
- When accommodations are requested for medical reasons, a treatment plan must be included in the letter pertaining to educational purposes and student learning.
- The letter should be:
- On letterhead
- State the student’s name and birth date
- Include the date
- Physician’s, Psychiatrist’s or Psychologist’s signature
- Some physicians may request payment for a letter, which is the responsibility of the student/parent.
- Every effort will be made to expedite the accommodations and IPP process upon receipt of the official documentation
