Student Supports

Student Learning at Edwards

Students at École Edwards are learning on a dual track system with English classrooms and French classrooms. We put building relationships and trust first, in order to help stduents feel a sense of belonging and that they are cared for. When teachers and staff are planning for how to best meet student needs, they learn about the students strengths and interests first. Students have choices in thier learning experiences and we strive to keep them engaged, on task, and reflective in thier learning, while increasing thier level of independence and mastery.

We wish for everyday to be a success for every stduent at school. Learning goals look different for every learner, whether it be for academics, social, emotional, medical, or other learning needs, we are responsive in our support for their learning. 

At École Edwards, we are a team. The teacher and parent best support each child, alongside assistants, our Child Development Advisor (CDA), Inclusion Teachers, and administration, when needed. We work together to ensure universal design for learning approaches are in place and when needed we create Student Success Plans to support specific student needs.

We are always here to help - reach out to your child's teacher first for questions or concerns.

Student supports at École Edwards Elementary School include Learning Support Teachers or Inclusion Teachers, Child Development Advisors (CDAs), several Educational Assistants and School Administration. This team works collaboratively to address individual learning needs of students.

Child Development Advisor (CDA)

The CDA works as a member of the school team to help provide social/emotional guidance and support to students and their families. This involves collaborating with teachers and administration to assess the individual needs of their school. The CDA also functions in collaboration with Program Specialists, Psychologists, Family School Liaison Workers and other professionals.

Learning Coaches

Learning coaches are teachers who are knowledgeable about inclusion and the Alberta programs of study, and are skilled at teacher collaboration and sharing promising practices. The learning coach works as part of the learning support team to build the capacity of the school, and works side by side with teachers to improve instruction and design learning experiences that are accessible, effective and engaging for all students.

 

RVS believes all students can and want to learn, to belong, and to experience mastery and independence within their learning. We believe inclusive education and inclusion in schools, classrooms and learning environments is the best way to nurture and accomplish success for all. At École Edwards we work hard to care for and support all students towards success in their learning.

RVS' Learning Supports team works closely with school staff to support students with learning, social/emotional, sensory, behavioural, physical, cognitive, adaptive, communication, physical and mental health care needs to flourish and to meet their full potential academically, socially, and emotionally. At École Edwards we have a strong and knowledgable team working closely together, collaborating and problem solving, to support students in their strengths, based on their needs.
