IEP and Special Educational Form

The parent consultation forms for all students on IEP’s have now been distributed, along with permission forms for non-identified students who receive Resource support in both the French and English streams. Please check your children’s backpacks for these important forms.

If your child receives Withdrawal Resource support with our Special Education team, please sign and return the forms promptly so we can begin formal support of your child. Please notify the school office if you need a replacement of any of these forms.

Once you have had an opportunity to complete these parent consultation and permission forms, please return them directly to the office Attn. K. Wessenger-Macdonald, for tracking.

Thank you.

IMPORTANT – Student Data Verification Forms


The Student Data Verification Forms are in the process of going home for your perusal and updating.  Please take a few extra minutes to go over each section very carefully.  If there is any information on the form that is no longer valid, please cross it out.  Add any new information on the lines on the right side of the page.  If you do not cross out the old information, it will stay in the database.

Please sign and return these forms directly to the office as soon as possible.  It is very important for the safety of your child, that we have the most current, accurate information.
