Student Support - Inclusive Education

Welcome to Student Support

The Surrey School District is dedicated to the promotion of inclusive, equitable, and meaningful educational experiences for all students.  To this end, the Surrey School District's Student Support team works collaboratively with school teams, parents, and community partners to create supportive, inclusive, and caring learning communities where all children, specifically those children who have exceptional learning needs, can reach their full potential.  Student Support personnel endeavour to provide support and services to schools with programs spanning early learning through Grade 12.  This support includes both direct and indirect support to school personnel and students, professional learning and provision of a wide range of human and learning resources in schools.

We believe:

  • embracing diversity (e.g., inclusive education, multiculturalism, diverse learner needs, etc.) is a fundamental value that must be supported throughout public schooling
  • all school district actions must support the primacy of the classroom environment
  • quality professional learning is multi-faceted and is fundamental to improving student learning
  • a tidy delineation of roles will no longer be possible or desirable in a context where diversity is the norm - professional collaboration is key
  • developing professional capacity is critical in order to embrace diversity in public schooling
  • in a focused priority on the earliest and least intrusive intervention that is embedded in a systems approach to educational design

Some of the ways we provide services and supports include:

  • supporting and providing robust professional learning experiences to individuals and school teams
  • supporting school teams in coordinating specialized supports to students with individual needs
  • assisting administrators to focus on quality learning experiences in classrooms
  • assisting administrators and school-based teams in effective educational planning for all students with identified learning needs
  • reviewing, providing, and supporting the implementation of quality learning resources

For more information about supports and services provided for students with diverse abilities or disabilities, please refer to the GUIDE TO INCLUSIVE EDUCATION FOR SURREY SCHOOLS: EMBRACING DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION.
