District Learning Centre (Behaviour)

The Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC)’s option of first consideration for placement is the regular classroom. Underlying this option is a focus on provision of individualized support through program delivery in the regular classroom. Individualized support, whether provided in a regular classroom setting or through more intensive resource withdrawal or special education class placements, will be provided to exceptional students within the framework of the Board’s available resources.

District Learning Centres support students with complex learning and behavioural needs.  Depending on the particular program, students attend the District Learning Centre for either a full or half-day.  Programming focuses on core Ministry of Ontario Curriculum expectations (e.g. Language) and also alternative curriculum areas (e.g. self-regulation, social-emotional skills, etc.)  A core focus involves preparing students for a return to full-time attendance in a regular classroom.
