Special education program

 

​The Special Education Program at Wilsonton State High School offers ongoing differentiated support to approximately 15% of our student population. Under the leadership of the Head of Special Education Services, a team of SEP Case Managers and support staff work closely with all teachers to provide the most inclusive education opportunities possible to students with verified disabilities or learning support needs, or those from non-English speaking backgrounds.

The Special Education Program provides two key levels of support to students:

  • Case management support and liaison with students and classroom teachers in cases where students primarily access a mainstream program of study. Curriculum is delivered at the age appropriate level, although the methods of teaching and assessing the curriculum can incorporate reasonable adjustments to ensure the student can effectively demonstrate their ability in the subject area.
  • Intensive support delivered through a highly modified curriculum and assessment program. Students access the curriculum at junctures described in an Individual Curriculum Plan and assessment formats accommodate students’ strengths and individual capabilities. Modified curriculum is delivered in small group settings with SEP teacher and teacher aide support throughout junior secondary. In senior secondary, students transition to a course identical in content to their age peers, but with reasonable adjustments applied.
