Individual Achievement Program

The Individual Achievement Program is designed and taught at Salmon Arm Secondary-Sullivan Campus to help identified students with exceptional needs reach their full potential and transition into the larger community, often with Community Living support.  It is a program that aims to help students develop life skills (social skills, functional math and literacy, pre-employment skills, personal safety, nutrition, and hygiene).  Students are integrated with support in electives when appropriate and goals are clearly outlined in Individual Education Plans (IEPs).  Students often participate in community outings to enrich their learning and support transition.
Students complete the program with a School Leaving Certificate and attend graduation ceremonies at the end of their Grade 12 year.  *Students in modified courses do not receive credits for a regular Dogwood Graduation in those courses.  They will however, be eligible for an Evergreen Certificate once they meet the outcomes of their Individualized Education Program.
