The FOCUS program is a system special education program designed to meet the needs of students with complex issues including diagnosed mental health disorders, mental health issues and related learning difficulties. Learning and coping strategies, social skill development and support networks are key areas of focus designed to assist students in the school environment and beyond. There is a strong focus on assisting students with goal setting. A combination of small group instruction and integration are available based on individual student needs. Core subject areas and optional courses are available through a variety of instructional options allowing students to experience success. Instruction is guided by an Instructional Support Plan (ISP) and builds on individual strengths and needs.
