Student Services is comprised of a Learning Strategist and Guidance Counsellors. We work collaboratively with our students, parents, and teachers so students can be successful learners.
Learning Strategist : The Learning Strategist helps to coordinate new Individual Program Plans (IPP). 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 specialized assessment to determine special education programming and services, completed by 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.
The learning strategist might support self-advocacy, attention and concentration in the learning process/strategies, memory skills needs, organizational skills, time management skills, reading skills, writing skills test preparation and study skills.
Success Centre: Students who have an IPP who require a quiet environment to write tests may have access to the Success Centre. We have computers available for students requiring assistive technology. Priority to the Success Centre is given to students who have social/emotional disorders.
Guidance Counsellors: Guidance counsellors work with students according to the student’s surname.
Guidance counsellors offer a variety of services:
- Educational/Career Counselling
- Personal/Social Concerns
- Post-Secondary Planning
Transitioning Support: Guidance counsellors and the Learning Strategist support the transition of students from grade 9 to grade 10, grade 12 to post secondary and Indigenous Learner Transition Plans.
