Inclusive Education

Fort Vermilion School Division is committed to providing appropriate educational opportunities for all students in supportive inclusive learning environments. We strive to ensure that all students have a sense of belonging within their classrooms and school community and that all students receive a quality education regardless of their ability, disability, language, cultural background, gender or age.​

 

Early Childhood Services

Learning begins the moment we are born.  During the early years, children learn about themselves and the world around them.  Their personalities take shape, and they begin to develop the foundations of knowledge that will support them throughout their lives. Rich Early Childhood Programs provide the opportunity for children to begin their learning in developmentally appropriate environments designed to meet the needs of young learners.​

 

Primary Literacy Supports

​Students in the Fort Vermilion School Division who are struggling in the area of reading and writing are provided with effective interventions as early as possible.

 Success in School for Children & Youth in Care

​Success in School for Children and Youth in Care is a cross-ministry initiative involving Education and Human Services. Collaboration between the school, home and Child and Family Services, will lead to increased success for children and youth in care.​
