Community Learning Skills & Community Learning Skills/Behaviour and Learning Assistance

Ottewell School is a designated site for two of Edmonton Public Schools' special needs programs. We have a Community Learning Skills (CLS) classroom and a Community Learning Skills / Behaviour and Learning Assistance (CLS/BLA) classroom. View our district's description of CLS and CLS/BLA programs.

In both of these classrooms, we have dedicated teachers and educational assistants who plan a wide range of learning activities to both interest students and develop their skills. Students are challenged to develop academic, social, and living skills. For their academic development, they have lessons in a variety of subjects. Regular field trips are part of the program. As well, students have opportunities to participate in different school activities and programs, such as assemblies, Best Buddies, Snack Shack, and inclusion in some complementary courses. We highly value communication and relationships with parents/guardians so we can all work together to support our students.
