2016.12 Co-operation between Ministries for Student Success
Submitted by: Surrey District Parent Advisory Council SD#36
Be it resolved that
BCCPAC petition the Ministries of Education; Finance; Children and Family Development; and Health to jointly ensure that funding is available for the testing and assessment required to obtain the “designations” needed for intervention and support for students with learning disabilities.
And Be It Further Resolved That:
BCCPAC advocates for intervention and support for students with learning disabilities before they reach Grade 5.
Proposer’s Position Statement Supporting the Resolution:
At the primary grades, students with ‘challenges’ relative to other students are aware and will become disinterested and disengaged from the school system if not ‘stemmed’ with the right support. Parents have to go through a quagmire of obstacles from family doctors, pediatricians and referrals to psychologists, school-based teams, Children and Family Development and Ministry of Health to get a ‘designation’ so that their child will receive the necessary supports in school.
