It’s important that the teacher candidate possesses the skill set necessary to work with vulnerable youth, who are often struggling with many barriers, including drug addiction and mental health.
Central Programs and Services-SD23 is a supportive learning environment focused on meeting the diverse academic, social, emotional and behavioural needs of our students. We offer a variety of unique educational programs and services aimed at meeting the needs of the whole child. Our teaching and operational framework is characterized by identifying and capitalizing on the assets and strengths students inherently bring versus what they do not. We believe that creating opportunities for our students to showcase their gifts, talents and interests builds a sense of self-worth, confidence and resiliency from which to move forward.
