BEHAVIOR AND LEARNING ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS (CONNECTIONS)
Minchau School is a designated Division site for the Behaviour and Learning Assistance Program (BLA) for Grades 1 to 6. The BLA program supports students displaying chronic, extreme and pervasive behaviours. Students require close and constant adult supervision and a high level of structure to function in an educational setting. Our classrooms have smaller class sizes with extra adult support. Smaller class sizes which allow for more targeted instruction along with predictable and clearly articulated routines, procedures, expectations and schedules are all in place to help students be successful. Students are supported in developing and demonstrating positive behaviour and social skills while achieving academic goals. Students work towards improving their problem solving skills and self-management and coping skills. Minchau School offers the BLA program for both Division 1 and Division 2 students.
Opportunities are available to join other classes for instruction in a student’s area of strength and for Physical Education and Music.
