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.
SET-BC Services 2015-2016 Background
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.
