Monivae College encourages all students to realize their unique potential. Thus as part of this student body, students with special needs should have access to an individual program tailored to meet these needs, delivered in a caring educational environment.
It is recognized that a full academic program may be difficult for some students to maintain for a wide range of reasons. Thus the Special Education Department offers a number of support structures in addition to specialist individual programs to assist students including:
- Year 8 Language Development
- Year 9 & 10 Catch-Up (A moderated support program - entry into the course is approved following consultation with the Year Level Coordinator, Special Education Coordinator, Director of Studies and families.
- Homework club After school program available to assist students in developing an effective approach towards their study.
National Consistent Collection of Data for students with Disabilities (NCCD)
This year Victorian Catholic schools will participate in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability. The Data Collection is a joint initiative that has been endorsed by all education ministers in Australia.
The Data Collection will provide Australian schools, parents, education authorities and the community with information about the number of students with disability in schools and the reasonable adjustments being provided for them to participate in education on the same basis as their peers.
This information will also support schools and education systems to achieve the educational goal set out in Australian Education Ministers' Melbourne Declaration (2008) of ensuring that Australian schooling promotes equity and excellence. Within the College, the Data Collection will help to ensure that all students with disability are identified and supported to achieve their individual learning goals.
Further information can be obtained from the SCSEEC "Information for Parents/Carers" flyer about the National Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with a Disability.
If you do not wish for your child to be included in this data collection, you will need to inform the College in writing using the "opt-out consent" form. Please print a copy of this form and return to the College before Friday 15th August, 2014.
