L.Y. Cairns Student Services Program is designed to meet the needs of our school community. This plan provides direct and indirect services to students, parents and teachers. We regularly access an Edmonton Public Schools social worker and other consultants from the Inclusive Learning Team.
Community resources are accessed as needed. Our school nurse administers student medication, co-ordinates with Alberta Health Services and assists students and families in relation to student health concerns.
Personal counselling is provided for students in crisis situations. Any ongoing support is referred to community agencies.
Career counselling is co-ordinated within the classroom, in Work Experience and during small group sessions. Transition planning is part of the IPP process. We also have a Transitional Support Program for students after Year 12.
Self-identified First Nation Metis and Inuit (FNMI) students may choose to participate in weekly group activities related to their culture such as crafts, language and storytelling. These groups are led by our FNMI Liaison who also supports FNMI families and students in the classroom setting.
