Learning Support

For the 2015-2016 school year, Rainbow Creek's Learning Support Team will consist of our administrative team, the Resource teacher, the English Language Learning (ELL) teacher, the Early Literacy (EL) teacher and the Child Development Advisor (CDA).

This team was created in response to Alberta Education’s Action on Inclusion and Rocky View Schools’ focus on creating Universal Learning Environments. The goal of an inclusive classroom is to provide all students with the most appropriate learning environments and experiences.  Inclusion is about ensuring that each student belongs and receives a quality education no matter their ability, disability, language, cultural background, gender, or age.

At Rainbow Creek we have moved away from a strictly stand-alone, pull out approach to supporting students.  Instead, we are finding ways to collaborate with and support classroom teachers to best meet the diverse needs of all learners.  That being said, this does not mean that all children are in the classroom at all times. We recognize that occasionally small group or individual instruction is necessary to meet student needs.  As the Learning Support team, we are committed to working with all staff members to provide the opportunity for all students to have their individual needs met in an inclusive environment.
