Every school will establish a Teaching Support Team that will meet frequently to address immediate issues facing teachers and quickly identify resources, people, and strategies that can help those teachers more effectively support their students. The team, in collaboration with the classroom teacher, will monitor and evaluate the success of these supports and interventions.
Principals or vice principals will lead the teams, which will also include learning support teachers. Teachers will attend if discussions involve their classroom, students, or teaching practices.
When a student is referred, the Teaching Support Team will review the student’s learning profile, gather historical information and information from current teachers. Recommendations will be made to support student success. Parents/Guardians can refer by calling Student Services (896-5712) and speaking to a guidance counsellor.
