ACADEMIC SUPPORT (LST)
The purpose of academic support is to promote success in academic subjects through tutorial
instruction, assist students’ efforts to develop organization and study skills, and provide skill-building
strategies/support for areas of learning difficulty.
Classrooms equipped with audio-visual equipment and computers serve as tutorial centers where
students receive subject support, participate in one-on-one and group tutorials, and work on skill-
building activities. In addition to the academic support classes, learner support team (LST) staff
members support students in the subject classrooms. LST teachers also communicate students’
academic needs to classroom teachers and advocate and design relevant accommodations that will
Enrolment in an academic support block is based on academic need and the availability of space.
Students are approved for enrolment after a needs review. Students who are having academic
difficulties should see their school counsellor to explore options.
