Choices is an intervention currently in
place in all six mainstream secondary schools in North Vancouver. The
purpose of Choices is to support students with various social, emotional needs.
These students may need assistance to recognize, understand, and create
strategies to overcome these issues that have caused barriers to
learning. They are still a part of their school community, engaging in
academic and social activities that fit their learning needs, while having the
opportunity to connect to a Choices classroom teacher, Youth Engagement Worker
and a Choices counsellor. Choices is an intervention, with the ultimate goal of
having students maintain their educational experience at their regular
mainstream high school. The key component of Choices is the partnership
with the regular classroom teachers, grade counsellors, District Counsellors,
parents and community to collaborate, create and maintain a program of support
