Background

For almost 25 years, Special Education Technology – British Columbia (SET-BC) has worked in partnership with BC school districts and independent schools to support their K-12 students’ access to the curriculum through the use of communication, access and learning technologies. As the BC Ministry of Education moves forward with its plan to create a more flexible and personalized education system for all students, we want to ensure our program’s services remain relevant and effective for school districts, their teams, and their students. ​ The document below provides background information on the SET-BC service delivery model that will be implemented provincially in September 2015.

Overview

Paralleling the Response to Intervention (RTI) initiatives currently happening across the province, the new SET-BC service delivery model will provide services across three tiers.​ Tier 1 services are designed to help districts provide Professional Development opportunities on how technology can be used to support diverse student needs in the classroom. Tier 2 services are designed to help districts provide technology specific training and classroom-based technology solutions. Tier 3 services are designed to help school teams supporting students with challenging and complex needs. This overview document provides a general description of the services in all three tiers, a flow chart of the actual service delivery process during the school year, and a detailed protocol of each component of the service delivery model.
