 picture of boy and girlThe Greater Essex County District School Board prides itself in the continuum of programs and services offered in support of our learners.  Students have varying needs and degrees of exceptionality.  Our Cascade Model allows for placement of students with exceptional needs in the environment which is least restrictive or most enabling.  The regular class placement is always explored as our first option.  We believe in planned comprehensive programs and services which enrich the lives of learners.  Family and community interaction with our school principals and staff will help to ensure the success for our students.  Our staff are dedicated to working with children and youth and act as part of the school based team to plan appropriately.  We are committed to fulfilling our Board's Mission statement of providing "learning opportunities which support, challenge and inspire all students to achieve their full potential and enable them to participate meaningfully in communities."
