Student Services



At St. Maurice School the resource teacher has a multi-faceted role and is part of the Student Services team. The resource teacher works collaboratively with the school counsellor, administration, teachers, parents, students and outside support services.


Resource supports students by providing their classroom/subject teachers with assessment information, resources, materials, strategies and information; teacher use this information to better support students in their classrooms. The resource teacher does not typically work one on one with students, but rather helps develop and implement a learning plan that is delivered by classroom teachers, or through educational assistants.  


Specific assessments are administered by the resource teacher on behalf of the teachers who want to delve deeper into defining what may be impeding a student’s learning in the classroom. This is only done after the teacher has discussed these concerns with parents. Then the Student Services team decide what type of assessment to administer depending on the information being sought.


The resource teacher also oversees the Educational Assistants working at St. Maurice School.  In collaboration with Administration, EAs are matched with students and groups to ensure the best fit.
