KELSEY SCHOOL DIVISION SPECIAL PROGRAMS
ALTERNATIVE SITE PROGRAMS
Mary Duncan School houses an alternative school serving students at middle school and high school levels. The Kelsey Learning Centre has been relocated to University College of the North. Each serves a distinct student client group with a focus on student success and progress towards a high school diploma. Community support services complement those available from the school division. All programs use a blend of flexible course loads and time limits to assist course completion, while meeting the provincial requirements for course objectives.
KSD STUDENT SERVICES

We are also able to access the supports of an occupational therapist and physiotherapist through referrals to The Children’s Therapy Initiative.
CHILDREN’S THERAPY INITIATIVE
The Children’s Therapy Initiative is a joint initiative of the provincial government partners of Education, Citizenship and Youth, Family Services and Housing, Health/Healthy Living, and Healthy Child Manitoba. The goal of the Children’s Therapy Initiative is to provide co-coordinated, regionally based services that allow children to reach their full potential. Students are referred for assessments and/or specialized programming through the School Resource Teacher. Referrals are coordinated through the Superintendent at the School Division Office.
