From the Resource Team                                                      

WHAT DO WE DO?                                         

  • We consult regularly with classroom teachers to discuss and assist with the learning and behaving of their students.
  • We act as case managers for our students with special needs.
  • We assist classroom teachers with programming for students on Individual Education Plans and adapted programs.
  • We have regularly scheduled problem solving meetings with a school team to brain storm and problem solve around individual students who may not be meeting with success in their learning and/or behaviour.
  • We work closely with our Educational Assistants so that they can develop skills to work as successfully with our students as possible.
