Flexible Pathways Program: Grades 1-12
For all students, educational practices should be flexible and responsive to their strengths, needs, and learning preferences. Flexible Pathways, a program at EICS, helps create learning experiences to ensure students with complex learning needs are successful (i.e., students with a diagnosed developmental disability). This program strives to balance our vision and values of inclusive education with interventions and strategies of targeted instruction for our most complex learners.
Our Flexible Pathways program provides a half-day of targeted instruction focused on Literacy, Numeracy, Communication, and Social skills in a structured, yet flexible environment, with experienced teachers giving students the attention and support they need to succeed. Targeted instruction is complemented by inclusive and authentic learning opportunities that allow students to further explore and develop their interests in school environments with peers and appropriate supports.
Flexible Pathways also provides a collaborative structure of support including Educational Assistants, Inclusive Learning Consultants, Division Psychologists, Speech-Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Low Vision Consultant, and Deaf & Hard of Hearing supports.
Flexible Pathways is available at the following schools:
- St. John XXIII Catholic School (1-4), Fort Saskatchewan
- Holy Spirit Catholic School, (1-4), Sherwood Park
- St. Theresa Catholic School (5 - 8), Sherwood Park
- Archbishop Jordan Catholic High School, (9-12) Sherwood Park
Flexible Pathways Programming is also available within our other community schools, personalized to meet the needs and honour the strengths of each learner.
