Who should be involved in supporting my student's return to learn?

Collaboration with the student and their support system will help manage all aspects of the student’s return to learn - at home and at school.

The student’s support system could include:

  • Parent or guardian
  • Classroom teachers
  • Administrators - principal or vice principal
  • School counsellor

Other resources may include:

  • Learning support teacher
  • Hospital or homebound teacher
  • Education assistant

In some cases, the student may have health care professionals that may need to be included. This could be:

  • School nurse or public health nurse
  • Physiotherapist
  • Occupational therapist
  • Social worker
  • Mental health professional

Students could also have other caregivers for example, after school care providers or extended family members.
