Oakwood's Resource program

There are 2 levels of support at OCI.  Please connect with your child's MART at their grade 8 school or the Special Education Department at OCI to see which level of support will meet your child's needs.

Indirect Support - the student's needs can be met in the regular class through the use of an Individual Education Plan and the regular classroom teacher will consult with the special education teacher as needed.

Resource Support - the student's needs can be met in the regular class through the use of an Individual Education Plan and the student receives a full class of resource support by being timetabled in the General Learning Strategies (GLE) course.  Student may take GLE each year of secondary school and will receive an elective credit towards their OSSD upon successful completion of the credit.
