Special Education Programs

Our literacy students are integrated with their grade level peers for all courses, but if they are having difficulty, they can report to the Learning Assistance room. Literacy students choose from the same options as all the other students and participate in Student Council, teams and clubs according to their areas of interest.

Avalon has also been designated as a BLAP (Behaviour Learning Assistance Program) site.  Where possible, these students are integrated into the regular program with extra support. The integration is dependent upon students maintaining acceptable standards of classroom cooperation. When they need support, they are welcomed into the Learning Assistance Program, which is dedicated to providing increased support.

All other students with special needs are provided with an Individualized Program Plan (IPP) and teachers provide the supports and accomodations as set out in the IPP.  Students are integrated into the regular program and provided with additional support when, where required.
