Students with special education needs who are primarily accessing non-credit courses leading to a Certificate of Accomplishment. In some cases, students may work toward an Ontario Secondary School Certificate (OSSC), which requires 14 credit courses.
Special Education Staff, parents and community support agencies work together in a collaborative community process to individually plan and prepare students for life in the community upon leaving secondary school (Students in this pathway may remain in school until June of the year in which the student turns 21 years of age).
In planning, options could include, but are not limited to: volunteer work and participation in recreational programs. A few students may access specialized programs (CICE – Community Integration through Co-operative Education) offered at a few Ontario colleges.
