Learning Services at SJK is aligned with the School’s vision of providing a responsive environment for students in their pursuit of academic success, personal growth and social responsibility. It is SJK’s mission to support all students in reaching their potential according to their own interests, abilities and personal goals in an inclusive learning community.
The vision of the Learning Services Program is that students will be provided with interventions and extensions that are founded on evidenced-based research, are data-driven and are evaluated in order to ensure that students are supported in an effective, consistent, and sustainable manner. All students should have equitable access to learning, opportunities for achievement, and the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of their educational programming.
Learning support programs and services are determined based on the recommendations outlined on Learning Support Plans and Response to Intervention Plans for individual students. These plans are designed to meet the individual needs of students through a continuous process that includes ongoing informal and formal assessment, intervention and extension development, implementation and review. All teachers are expected to implement the interventions and/or accommodations for individual students, in all classrooms. Referrals to internal/external support services are also available including; Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Pathology, Psycho-educational Testing, Counseling.
