Crawford Plains is a K-6 school with a population of about 300 students. Crawford Plains honours and celebrates diversity. Learning happens everywhere with everyone. Staff collaboration is essential to communicate students' goals and plan for successful transitions. Technology, including netbooks, iPads and classroom laptops is evident in all classrooms to support the diverse needs of students. Staff are familiar with and use a variety of software programs to support all learners.
Educational assistants are an integral part of the team and scheduling reflects support for all students. The teachers and educational assistants believe that the students belong to all staff and so educational assistants are flexible and support the needs of all students rather than following one specific student. Collaboration between teachers and educational assistants is key; planning reflects the input of both groups.
