"For most of us, technology makes things easier. For some of us, technology makes things possible"
In CESD, our goal for assistive technology is to increase student engagement and achievement through a model of differentiated instruction using assistive technology. We are striving to grow and enhance the overall use of assistive technology to benefit all learners.
"Assistive Technology is technology that increases, improves, or maintains the functional capabilities of students with disabilities"

Family School Wellness
The Family School Wellness Program is an important part of our healthy Chinook’s Edge school community. Our focus is providing support to children and families facing social, emotional or family difficulties. This may include information and referrals, student and/or family support, targeted small groups to promote student growth, preventative programming, and parenting support.
Our program is a joint partnership between Child and Family Services, municipal Family Community Support Services and Chinook's Edge School Division. To discuss how our Family School Wellness Program (FSW) can support your family, please contact the FSW Worker in your child's school. Our program requires parental / guardian consent, and parent/family involvement is important to us.

About Student Services at CESD
The Chinook’s Edge Student Services team provides a comprehensive range of programs and services to address the diverse learning needs of our student population. We believe all students should be educated in the most supportive environment. We value the importance of parent involvement and recognize that parent support is essential to student success.
Chinook’s Edge School Division supports students with special education needs within a Learning Support Team approach. This team consults and shares information relevant to the individual student’s education, and plans special education programming and services as required. The team may consist of the special education teacher, classroom teacher, parents, student (where appropriate), and other school and jurisdiction staff who are aware of the student’s needs.
A multidisciplinary approach is emphasized by Student Services when developing and implementing alternative or special programs for students. In addition to support services provided directly by student services staff we have also established both formal and informal links with external service providers to better meet the needs of our students.
In order for some students to be successful in school and to realize their full potential as individuals, it is necessary for them to have special programs that suit their unique abilities. Participation of exceptional students in regular school settings is based on the philosophy of equality, sharing, participation, and the worth and dignity of individuals.
