Program Support

Our Board embraces a philosophy of inclusion. Our Catholic schools are committed to the education of the whole person, since in Christ all human values find their fulfillment and unity. Students with special education needs are supported within Catholic school communities by a team who collaborate and maintain continuous communication to ensure that the student's diversified needs are met in an inclusive environment.

Father Donald MacLellan Catholic Secondary School welcomes all students into integrated classes. The multi-disciplinary Student Services Support Staff work in partnership with Program Support Services to support Subject Teachers and the School Based Support Team Meeting recommendations.

Students with Individual Education Plans may access Program Support in a variety of ways to assist with specific learning needs. This service is also available to any student who is experiencing difficulty and who is referred by the subject teacher.
