Special Education Program

The Special Education Program at Junior School focuses on the practice of educating students with special needs in a way that addresses their individual differences and needs.

This process is arranged by the Special Education Resource Teacher (SERT) and focuses on individual planning and monitoring of children who have been identified as special needs students. The goal of the Special Education program is to arrange learning so that teaching procedures, equipment, materials, and settings are addressed according to the student’s needs so that they can achieve success at school and within the community.

The SERT works with families, school administration, and potentially other education providers to ensure that Individual Education Plans (IEPs) are completed each term.   IEPs are living documents that are intended to change with the growth and needs of the student.

The Special Education policies of the Wikwemikong Board of Education are attached.
