Tier 3 (FLOW)

  • Family Learning Outreach and Wellness (FLOW) is a half-day therapeutic and half-day academic program supporting the social-emotional needs of students with primarily internalized behaviours and mental health issues.  The behaviours and mental health issues can cause significant challenges for students to attend and participate in a traditional school setting.
  • Students are taught mental wellness strategies, coping skills, and self-regulation techniques through Fine Arts, Foods, Health and Careers and Physical Education course work.  Students are also supported in completing their academics in partnership with Island ConnectEd K-12. Parents must participate in monthly parent information nights and work closely with the FLOW team.  The program is based out of Island ConnectEd K-12.
