What is an IEP & The IEP Process: The IEP Process
Coast Mountain School District and Hazelton Secondary School supports the delivery of learner support services to enable students to develop to their full potential. Learning ultimately supports the well-being of the self, the family, the community, the land, the spirits, and the ancestors. The Board values the practice of inclusion and provides opportunities for all students to pursue district, school, and personal goals in all aspects of their education. The Board believes that:
- Learning is holistic, reflexive, reflective, experiential, and relational (focused on connectedness, on reciprocal relationships, and a sense of place).
- Learning involves recognizing the consequences of one’s actions.
- Learning involves generational roles and responsibilities.
- Learning recognizes the role of Indigenous knowledge.
- Learning is embedded in memory, history, and story.
- Learning involves patience and time.
- Learning requires exploration of one’s identity.
- Learning involves recognizing that some knowledge is sacred and only shared with permission and/or in certain situations.
We supports early identification and intervention, promotes equitable access to
appropriate educational assessments, programs, and resources, and recognizes that some students benefit from differentiated, adapted, and modified programs. We also acknowledge the important role of parents/guardians in their child’s education and support opportunities for ongoing consultation regarding children’s education programs.
