Early Learning

Program Unit Funding (PUF) is provided by Alberta Education to Grasslands Public School System for children with severe disabilities/delays who require additional support beyond that offered in regular programs. This funding provides individual programming supports and strategies to meet each child's educational needs. The child must be three years of age by December 31 but less than five years of age on September 1. Any questions regarding PUF should be directed to the Early Learning Coordinator at (403) 362-8729.

Psychology Services

At times, the Student Services team deems it appropriate to complete a psychological-educational assessment to gain a better understanding of the learning needs of a student. With parent permission, this is done by either a psychologist employed by the district or a contracted professional. Schools complete referrals, and assessments are scheduled by central office. Follow up meetings take place with the school staff, parents and members of the student's learning team.
