At the Welcome Centre students from Grades 1 to 12 will have their English language and mathematics skills assessed. This assessment will help schools offer students the supports needed as they begin studying in the Halton District School Board.
During the assessment appointment the assessor will:
Conduct a family interview to discuss and document the student’s history, interests and goals
Assess the student’s English language proficiency and math skills
Share the assessment results
After the assessment the assessor will create an electronic learner profile for the student and make recommendations for academic programming. For secondary students the assessor will also make a recommendation for school placement.
