Learning Resource Program

Students identified as not meeting Outcomes are provided additional supports through our Learning Resource Program (LRP).  Our learning resource teachers work with classroom teachers and our Student Success Team to develop programs and instructional practices to help students succeed to expected levels.  The learning resource teacher also works either with individuals or small groups in pull-out situations, or works with the students and teacher in the regular classroom settings.​​

SWPBIS - School-Wide Positive Behavioural Intervention and Support System

SWPBIS Expectation Matrix - St. Angela 2018.pdf

Our students are expected to model Catholic values and treat all members of the École St. Angela Merici community in a Christ-like way.  In an effort to establish and reinforce consistent behaviour expectations and routines within each classroom and as a school, we utilize a School-Wide Positive Behavioural Intervention and Support (SWPBIS) system.  Our goal is to consistently provide students with positive feedback to reinforce appropriate behaviour.  All staff are familiar with and teach our Expectation Matrix in the first few weeks of the school year.  Staff members then acknowledge positive behaviours each day by handing out tickets to students demonstrating Christ-like behaviour.  SWPBIS draws are held on a weekly basis, offering students who have received a ticket the opportunity to receive a small prize for their appropriate behaviour.  ​
