Special Education


Individual Education Plans (IEPs)

Home School Learning Support Teachers are the main developers for consultation letters and IEPs. Learning Support Teachers at home schools will be collaborating with the OCV Learning Support Teacher Liaison(s) during this process. All OCV teachers are responsible for reviewing and implementing IEPs in their virtual learning environments.


Special Education Supports in the OCV

  • All students are encouraged to reach out to Remote Support Teachers for academic support during asynchronous learning blocks. 

  • Students and parents are encouraged to communicate regularly with OCV teachers and OCV Learning Support Teacher (if/when necessary) about the implementation of a student’s IEP (accommodations, etc.)

  • The OCV Virtual Resource Room (VRR) is available every day for students with IEPs who may benefit from extra support.  Please see additional information below.

OCV Virtual Resource Room (VRR)

Teachers and educational assistants are available within the virtual resource room to provide 1:1 support for students with IEPs from 8:30am-4:00pm every day

Here is a list of potential supports in the VRR:

  • Organization and time management support

  • Communication with classroom teachers, parents, LST, etc.

  • Navigating the OCV environment (Google Classroom, VLE, Google Calendar, accessing Remote Support Teachers, etc.)

  • Academic support (in conjunction with Remote Support Teachers)

  • Emotional support / referral

  • IEP Accommodations

    • Extra time (for test writing, assignment completion etc.)

    • Alternative setting (breakout rooms) 

    • Virtual body breaks/check-ins

    • Assistive technology support (Google Read and Write, Mindomo, etc.). We would like OCV students to use speech-to-text programs BEFORE they are referred for scribing.
