Students who feel they may need Learning Centre assistance need to direct their questions to their school counsellor.
There are students at Mt. Boucherie who have physical handicaps, health issues or who have been diagnosed with a learning disability. In order for these students to complete their secondary education successfully, some adaptations may have to be made in their program (e.g. use of a scribe and/or reader.) Students who continue in a regular program and qualify for such adaptations may apply to have their Provincial exams similarly adapted. An official adjudication application, accompanied by appropriate documentation, must be made by the school on behalf of the student. Contact your counsellor or Learning Assistance teacher.
Aboriginal Education Program
The Aboriginal Education Program has Student Advocates in our school to provide emotional, social, academic and/or behaviour support. They are there to help you with outside agencies such as public health, native housing, First Nations Bands, Metis Services and scholarship information. The Student Advocates also provide a liaison between students, teachers and parents regarding homework, attendance, tardiness, course changes, health and any other concerns. The Aboriginal Education Program provides cultural experiences and throughout the year program participants are invited to attend different events, career spotlight sessions, field trips, theatrical performances and career prep conferences. These events are beneficial for gaining knowledge of aboriginal culture and heritage.
