The Upper Canada District School Board has introduced new Student Support Partners in their Special Education Program. The position was added to provide social and emotional support to students so they can succeed in school.
Each of the 23 Student Support Partners introduced last spring serves a cluster of three to five schools. At the board meeting last week, Superintendent of Schools Susan Edwards said student health and well-being are vitally important. The Student Support program is responding to student needs, and will be measured for success and adjusted as needed.
