The staff at the St. James-Assiniboia School Division are dedicated to making our schools a safe place for students. The Safe School information sheet illustrates some of the challenges faced by students today and present some of the techniques we are employing to help students feel safe in our schools and in the community.
Be Web Aware
What is Be Web Aware?
Be Web Aware is a national, bilingual public education program on Internet safety. The objective of everyone involved in this project is to ensure young Canadians benefit from the Internet, while being safe and responsible in thier online activities.
The goal of the Be Web Aware initiative is two-fold:
1. Raise awareness among parents that there are safety issues when their children go online and that they need to get involved.
2. Provide practical information and tools that will equip parents to effectively manage Internet use in the home and to teach their kids to be Web savvy.
Educational Support Services
Phoenix School offers a wide range of educational support services. Educational Support Services consists of psychologists, social workers, speech and hearing clinicians, and a psychiatrist. Their services are available on a referral basis.
The St. James-Assiniboia School Division uses the Diagnostic-Collaborative Resource Delivery Model. Resource and classroom teachers work cooperatively in a team approach to assess and plan programs for students with learning difficulties. Hearing and vision testing, are all part of the Resource Program. Low Incidence Support is available through Education Manitoba for those few students who require more assistance than the regular resource or special education program can provide.
Guidance & Counselling
A counsellor is available to help students in kindergarten through grade 5 with educational, and personal concerns. Formal guidance classes include Personal Safety, Family and AIDS education.
"Reading Recovery" is designed to help Grade One children who need additional assistance in learning to read. Along with regular classroom instruction, the children involved receive individual reading and writing lessons for one half hour each day. Reading Recovery is intended to be a short-term intervention lasting from three to five months. Its goal is to help the children become independent readers who improve every time they read.
Math Enhancement Program
This is an early intervention program designed to provide extra support for children in Kindergarten, Grade One and Grade Two who are experiencing difficulties understanding the basic skills and concepts in mathematics.
A child in the Math Enhancement Program receives daily classroom support in Kindergarten in a small group setting. Qualifying grade 1 or 2 students receive 1 on 1 instruction every other day for a period of 12 to 20 weeks. Students receive pre and post testing. Parents are informed of student progress. The Student Assistant works in collaboration with the classroom teacher to plan a program to meet the needs of each student.
