Clearview Public Schools has recently partnered with Red Deer College (RDC) to provide additional training and support for Clearview’s Learning and Education Assistants (LEAs), to continue to increase learning support to students.
With 18 LEAs participating in the Red Deer College and Clearview Public Schools initiative, they are sure to come away with greater insight.
“We are extremely excited for this opportunity to partner with Red Deer College,” said Director of Inclusive Learning Grant Gosse. “By giving this opportunity for our staff, they will be better prepared and have even more capacity to support teachers and students in the classroom. Staff are the first resource in ensuring Clearview students succeed.”
The course, which is entitled “Introduction to Classroom Support”, will help participants who decide to pursue their Educational Assistant (EA) certificate. This course will be counted as one credit towards it.
RDC offers the Educational Assistant Program over a one-year period providing an EA Certificate through on-campus and distance learning classes. Students may enrol for full-time or part-time study.
Clearview’s LEAs will have five full days with a Red Deer College instructor.
For three out of the five class dates, LEAs will come together with the instructor at Red Deer College during Clearview’s scheduled Professional Days.
The LEAs who are enrolled at the moment to take the course come from seven different schools within Clearview: Byemoor, Coronation, Donalda, Erskine, Stettler Elementary, Wm. E. Hay Settler Secondary Campus and Stettler Outreach.
