The Secondary Life Skills Program is a small supportive class for students with Moderate to Severe Intellectual Disabilities and/or Autism. Students in this program have unique learning needs. Each student has an Individual Education Plan (IEP). Upon graduation, students are awarded a school leaving certificate. Class composition includes 1 teacher, and 2 support workers.
Placement: Students are appropriate referrals to the program when they meet the Ministry criteria for Moderate/Severe Intellectual Disabilities or Autism and have special learning needs that cannot be met in the regular classroom. Students across the District are referred to the Program by their School-Based Team which includes administrators, teachers and counsellors. Placements are decided by the Central Screening Committee of the Vancouver School Board.
