This transition booklet outlines information for all students as they transition to grade 9. Please also check out the school specific information for your future secondary school by visiting their transition page.
We encourage all students to attend and participate in any open houses/transition events that your new Secondary School holds. This is a great way to get to know your new environment and meet key staff.
If you are an Identified student (on an IEP), then you will be invited to an IPRC meeting to talk about your transition. You will also be invited to an open house night for grade 8 Parents/Guardians/students held by the Special Education Coordinator for Secondary, Heather Touzin. There is typically one held at each LKDSB Board office, North & South. Transition supports such as, individual tours, classroom visits, creation of social story pamphlets and videos may also be part of your transition plan. For additional special education information, check out the LKDSB Special Education website.
