Learning Support Services
Student Support Team (SST) is a school-based problem-solving team, which provides structured support and assistance through varying research-based instructional strategies that will promote students’ learning.
It brings all the stakeholders in the learning community together to discuss the concern, share information, and find the most feasible action plan for the students in need.
Student support team members can consist of a range of people who have knowledge of a student and the issue or problem they may be facing, and may be helpful in planning for student success. This may include class teachers, ELL and Learning support teachers, admissions, and administrators.
The Learning Support Department believes that every child is unique and has the capacity to learn when given the right support. The aim of the department is to provide a supportive pillar for students and teachers from Grades K-12 to enhance learning.
- To identify any student who may have a learning need or perform beyond grade level expectations as soon as possible
- To ensure that all the stakeholders (teachers, parents, administrators, or any other school members) are aware of the student’s learning needs. Such students are, therefore, a whole school responsibility.
- To keep record of pertinent information, including students’ learning goals, interventions, and outcomes.
- To promote self-awareness for all students, helping them to recognize their strengths and weaknesses
- To promote self-advocacy for all students, especially older students, by involving them in the decision making about their learning goals and intervention.
- To collaborate and support all school members so that they will be able to meet the students’ learning needs.
- To collaborate with the students’ parents at all times.
