The Learning Assistance / Life Skills class is a district program for students with special needs, who would benefit from a more supported program.
Learning Assistance / Life Skills
The focus of the program is to help students develop the following skills:
- Social skills
- Independence at home, community and school
- Confidence and self-esteem
- Reading and arithmetic required for daily living
A commitment from parents to follow through with agreed-upon program goals is imperative if each student is to achieve independence, an awareness of one's self and the community and development to the student's fullest potential
Students can remain in the Learning Assistance/Life Skills program through the age of 19. Upon reaching the age of 19 the student will earn a school leaving certificate instead of a Dogwood certificate.
