Saunders Procedures for Students on IEP
Students or Parents may contact a Guidance Counsellor to review a student's academic progress to determine if a student would benefit from tutoring, or direct instructional assistance with organization, note-taking, or study skill development. The counsellor will seek a resource teacher's advice and the parent contacted with Student Service's opinion as well as the avenues to be pursued. A Program Development Team meeting and a School Team meeting are likely directions if there appears to be a significant discrepancy between the student's potential and his/her performance. The student's OSR is reviewed to determine academic, attendance, behavioural and emotional patterns that might suggest the student's strengths, barriers, supports and strategies for improvement.
Saunders' Resource Program and GLS101/201 courses
Saunders' Resource program is available to students on Individual Education Plans (IEP's) if there is seat capacity and if the recommendation from previous schools is confirmed by Saunders Special Education staff. All IEP students are monitored regularly by appointments and individual feedback from teachers. Where qualifying students are found to be having difficulty with their scheduled courses, withdrawal for part or all of a class is considered with parent and student input.
