Toronto Catholic District School Board

Educational Services
 
Support for all students is a hallmark of our philosophy at Bishop Allen. Thus, resource services are provided to students who are formally identified through an IPRC, those students who received remedial support in Grade 8 and those students who are enrolled in Grade 9 Learning Strategies classes. The method of service and degree of accommodation to be provided is based on IPRC summaries, exchange of information meetings and an IEP created with ongoing parent communication. Each student is supported by a resource teacher and dialogue between home and school is always welcome. Some students will be supported by an educational assistant in class and support in the resource centre is available before school, during classes and lunches, and after school. The staff in the Educational Services Department is committed to providing the necessary support in a caring and compassionate manner and strives to ensure success for all of their students.
