Student Services collaborates with Resource Teachers in Catholic Partner schools to assist students with programming needs and their parents while registering & transitioning to SBDHS.
Government applications (funding, health, etc.) are submitted as needed and Individual and Adapted Education Plans are created for identified students. Student Services collects data regarding the needs of students and determines appropriate educational supports and adaptations to meet programming needs. Student Services communicates regularly with SBDHS staff and parents, seeking their support and advice to establish a cooperative relationship in support of student success.
Personal problems and concerns are discussed in a caring and confidential atmosphere. Student Services meets with students upon self-referral, a referral from parents, staff or administration.
With parental permission, students may be referred to specialists in the areas of Social Work and Psychology as assigned through a Shared Services Agreement with Louis Riel School Division (LRSD).
In situations when there is evidence of substance abuse, child abuse, child neglect, severe medical or social conditions, potential suicide or students appearing to be under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances, Student Services notifies the Principal, along with appropriate personnel and agencies, using discretion in sharing such information within legal confines.
Student Services assists SBDHS students with course selections and registrations, course changes, graduation requirements, secondary school alternatives (Distance Education and Summer School options), and post-secondary planning, and program requirements.
SBDHS students receive assistance with registration choices for their upcoming year, as well as credit checks and program prerequisites for making appropriate career choices.
