Student Support Services

Special Education
St. Joseph School has a Coordinator of Student Services who oversees programs for students with special medical and/or learning needs who are funded by the ministry of education, as well as those not funded. 

Learning Assistance
If your child has mild to moderate learning difficulties they may benefit from our learning assistance program. The focus is on providing remediation, learning strategies and compensatory skills. English language learners receive small group instruction in English in addition to the regular Language Arts Program.

Specific Skill Development
For students in need of basic skills development, we offer short-term direct instruction in a small group setting. This service enables students who are behind in reading, writing or math (for reasons other than a learning difficulty) to get caught up with the regular classroom program.

The enrichment program is a service available to all children in need of a challenge beyond the regular BC Ministry of Education School Program. Enrichment takes place in the classroom.

English Language Learner
ELL is an additional service that enables English language learners to succeed in the regular classroom. The goal of this program is to develop the students' language skills so that they can learn and communicate appropriately with peers and adults.

Counseling services
A teacher is available for students, parents and teachers to discuss concerns and work towards resolution.
