Dr. K. A. Clark School supports a high number of English language learners. Teachers and administration work hard to identify students who need support through annual benchmarking of students who are born in foreign countries, or whose parents are born outside of Canada.
Students who are identified as needing English language support are then provided with appropriate accommodations within the classroom and extra support both inside and outside of the classroom.
In collaboration with Multicultural Association Wood Buffalo (MCAWB), we provide free tutoring for our students from ECDP - Grade 6.
We also have an in-school Settlement Youth Support worker with the Settlement Workers in Schools Program (SWIS), at the YMCA of Northern Alberta settlement services. Monica Rukeba is our SYS worker for 2021-2022 school year.
