St. Georges Tech Inclusion
St. Georges Technical High School offers a supportive and inclusive environment where students with special needs who have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) receive specialized instruction to provide access to the general education curriculum. These services and accommodations needed for each individual student are offered within the general education setting by Learning Support Coaches (LSCs), who are certified special education teachers, certified Paraeducators, and other specialists. These specialists deliver related services such as speech therapy, counseling, occupational and physical therapy as directed by the IEP.
St. Georges Tech has a collaborative consultative model of delivering instruction. The certified special education teacher (LSC) consults with teachers on employing specialized instruction strategies that work for individual students. The Learning Support Coach also works with students and families to determine what accommodations are needed and how these accommodations will be delivered in the general education classroom setting.
St. Georges Tech provides a unique opportunity to foster the independence and self-advocacy skills necessary to prepare each student to be career and college ready for whatever post-secondary path they choose. After earning the appropriate number of credits and upon graduation from St. Georges, each student will receive a high school diploma and career certificate.
