Millarville Community School Coach’s Corner

A Learning Coach in FSD is responsible to plan for and address learning needs of students with diagnosed learning needs. In addition, she is responsible to ensure teachers have access to supports and to ensure Individual Learning Plan goals are met within a classroom situation.

Coachs Corner graphic 1At MCS, we strive to exhibit the attributes of an internationally minded person.

We are always encouraging our staff, students, parents, and community members to display and celebrate these attributes.
