EXCEPTIONAL EDUCATION & STUDENT SERVICES
- In the coming school year, in order to prevent a spike in the classification rate, it will be important for our teachers and service providers to monitor and recognize any adverse impact from the COVID-19 Pandemic on individual student learning.
- Recognizing that students and staff may be returning back to school with new, individual specific needs, we understand that social emotional awareness in support of learning is a primary area where continuous support and monitoring is needed. Therefore we plan, with intention, to provide students, parents and staff with predictable, connected and safe school environments to support the whole child.
