The goal of the student services program is to provide support to both students and staff to ensure success for all learners. Due to the diverse needs of students in our classrooms and the goal of providing appropriate, inclusive programming for all students, it is important that student services teachers and classroom teachers work as a team in the development and delivery of programs. Should your child have learning issues please talk with their classroom teacher.
In the Louis Riel School Division, the Consultative/Collaborative model serves as a guide in the development of programs for students. At Windsor, the Student Services team is comprised of resource teachers, a Reading Recovery teacher, a counsellor, speech, psychology and social work clinicians and the administration. The model includes:
- Transition: To profile student needs in the areas of academic, social, emotional, physical development and behaviour in order to determine programming and placement.
- Assessment: To review/evaluate student needs in the areas of academic, social, emotional, physical development and behaviour and ensure appropriate programming is in place.
- Instructional Support: To work collaboratively to develop programming addressing student needs in the areas of academic, social, emotional, physical development and behaviour.
Student Support Services
The Louis Riel School Division provides clinical services to our students and families. At Windsor School, the Student Support Services and school staff work together in order to best help students with learning needs. Should your child have learning issues, please talk with the classroom teacher.
A speech and language clinician works closely with children who have speech, language or hearing problems. Assessment and therapy is provided to a small number of students. A social worker works with the school staff, the family home and the child when there is a need for closer ties between home and school. A psychologist works to assist teachers in diagnosing and planning programming for those students who present with significant learning issues.
