UGDSB launches parent website for supporting students with special education needs
April 17, 2020
The Upper Grand District School Board has launched a website for parents/guardians with resources and information to support students with special education needs.
On the website, parents/guardians will find links to various learning profiles (as they are defined within the UGDSB), ideas for daily routines, behavioural supports and strategies, our board’s mental health website, as well as some learning activity ideas. Each of the links will take parents to a section designed to offer support for students with varying learning needs. The resources and suggestions provided are meant to be used alongside the resources and tools provided by classroom teachers.
As we venture into unknown territory, we are working together to create a distance learning venue that is not only accessible, but also provides varying levels of support to ensure we are meeting the needs of all our students.
