In compliance with Regulation 181/98, placement of a student in a regular classroom is the first option considered by an IPRC. If students are placed into a Special Education Program or Class, integration is initiated, in consultation with parents, when it is appropriate to meet the needs of the child. Integration from the special education program/class is on an individual basis and may range from brief periods, to portions of the student’s school day, to full time. Appropriate supports are provided to facilitate the integrated placement. The plan for each student’s integration is reviewed regularly by the School-based Team.
In order to ensure programs and services are meeting the needs of students, program reviews are conducted on a regular basis. This ensures that staff, SEAC members and school communities are familiar with programs and services and have an opportunity to provide feedback.
The following list provide an overview of the continuum of placements and programs provided by the Lambton Kent District School Board. The Lambton Kent District School Board takes pride in the range of placement options and the comprehensive services offered to our exceptional students.
