About our supportive education services
Supportive Education Services support the individual learning journeys of students with disabilities who are verified or awaiting verification under the Education Adjustment Program. Functional programs in English, Mathematics, Science and Art are offered for students who are on an Individual Curriculum Plan or Individual Transition Plan. In addition to these core subjects, functional life skills and work readiness skills are addressed through the ASDAN framework and Functional Business subject. An exercise program focusing on stretching, strength and fitness allows students to access the school gym.
In addition to these programs, in-class support and additional tutorials are offered to students in mainstream classes who are on a QCIA, QCE and or OP Pathway.
