Carolina Curriculum for Infants & Toddlers/Preschoolers; Brigance Inventory of Early Development, Brigance Inventory of Basic Skills and Brigance Life Skills Curriculum are all the assessments used at Parkland School once per term to evaluate the student's progress. From these assessments an IPP (Individual Program Plan) is developed and updated throughout the term. The Alberta Education Curriculum "Programming For Students With Special Needs"; the AIM (Assessment Intervention Matrix); Meeting Challenging Needs Curriculum and the "HELP" Charts are all utilized for classroom teaching strategies.
Parent-Teacher Interviews are held three times a year to complete IPP's and to share results of assessments. Parents are requested to provide input into the development of the IPP through questionnaires sent out twice per term and through Parent-Teacher Interviews. Attendance at interviews is compulsory!
Parkland School is monitored and evaluated by Alberta Education and the Board of Parkland Community Living and Supports Society on a regular basis. We are a designated special education accredited private school in good standing with Alberta Education.
