SEAC SOUNDBYTE – December 2018MindUp (Pilot Program for Grade 5 students)

The MindUp program focuses on the brain and how to improve behavior and learning for all students. Lessons include easy strategies for helping students focus their attention, improve their self-regulation skills, build resilience to stress, and develop a positive mind-set in both school and life.


The Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) consists of members nominated by the local community associations and approved by the Board. The local associations have parental representatives who promote the interests and well-being of pupils with exceptional needs and abilities. SEAC’s mandate is to make recommendations to the Board in respect of any matter affecting the establishment and development of Special Education programs and services for students of the Board with exceptional needs.  Each month, SEAC provides school communities with a Soundbyte – an article that helps to develop awareness by parents regarding pupils with exceptional needs and abilities.
