Wood Buffalo Partners from Education, Health and Child and Family Service developed this framework to enhance each school and school district’s system of learning supports. The framework focuses on an organizational model that expands and supports school improvement efforts in three key areas namely academic instruction, learning supports and learning teams.


1.    Ensure children and youth academic, social, emotional and physical development and address learning, behavior and emotional problems to promote learning and enhance functioning for independent living.

2.    Ensure schools and the community provides children and youth a safe, healthy, caring learning environment that respects individual differences and maintains high expectations for achievement and independence.

Guiding Principles

  •       Enable all children to learn and all teachers to teach effectively.
  •       Ensure coordinated and integrated systems of prevention, early intervention and care.
  •       Remove barriers to learning and independence and engage students in classroom instruction.
  •       Support children, youth and families in the context in which they live and learn.
  •       Support the least restrictive and non-intrusive form of intervention(s) required in responding to children/youth needs.
  •       Respect individual, family, cultural, language and special needs.
  •       Commit to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions and resources (services and programs) in order to seek continuous improvements to the collaborative service delivery model over time.
