The Greater Essex County District School Board is taking part in a pilot project that aims to strengthen supports for students with special needs.

The school board will offer a reading-intervention program over the next three years and participate in research to help all boards better understand the needs of students with learning disabilities so they can provide more effective programming for these students in their local communities.

“We are very excited,” says Superintendent of Education for Special Education Lynn McLaughlin. “We will be able to expand the incredible work we have been doing to include more students and schools with the goal of early intervention.”

A detailed plan for the pilot project is being developed and will be ready for the beginning of the upcoming school year.

“As part of this pilot project we will be able to build greater capacity throughout our Board to better serve students with learning disabilities,” said Director of Education, Erin Kelly stated.
