One Learning Community: Diversity is our Strength
Guiding Principles – Inclusive Learning
- We believe that success for each and every student is our work.
- We believe inclusion equitably supports and appropriately challenges all students.
- We anticipate, celebrate and purposefully plan for diversity.
- We use our comprehensive resources and supports in a cohesive, coordinated manner to support success for all students.
- We create flexible and accessible inclusive environments that support age-appropriate placement of students in their catchment schools.
- We seek to understand and foster strengths while supporting the diverse learning needs of all.
- We nurture collaborative partnerships with parents and all education partners.
- We create flexible learning opportunities that address the diverse needs of students through relevant, accessible and appropriate use of curriculum and resources.
The Learning Support/Inclusive Learning Team provides both direct and consultative services to students with special needs and the staff that supports them. Our professionals and paraprofessional staff work in partnership with school-based staff to address the challenges faced by students with exceptionalities.
