Christ the Teacher Catholic Schools provide academic support, at both the elementary and high school levels, to students experiencing academic difficulty. Student Support Services Teachers (SSSTs) provide resources, strategies, and intervention to help students increase academic achievement.
Elementary Student Support Services
In elementary schools, SSSTs provide in-class, small group, and individualized support for students experiencing difficulty in literacy and mathematics. The SSSTs will collaborate with parents and school staff to ensure that the educational needs are met for students who require intensive supports.
High School Student Support Services
At Sacred Heart High School, the SSST provides in-class and consultative support for students who are experiencing difficulty with academic achievement. The SSST assists with classroom adaptations and monitors academic progress for students who require intensive supports. For students who require a tutorial period or quiet work space, the HELP room is available throughout the school day. The HELP room has an educational assistant available to assist students with their academic work as needed.
