Indigenous Education Services
Indigenous Education Services functions to support the positive experiences and success of Indigenous students.
Home education began in 1923 with a request from an isolated farm family who wanted to provide an education for their children. This bridging of the gap between students and teachers was called distance education. It has evolved to what it is today; a very flexible and personalized program. Parents have the opportunity to have control over their children's education in a home setting with the assistance of certified teachers.
PWPSD's Information Technology Support Team offers technology services to office sites and schools.
Early Childhood Services (ECS) or Kindergarten programs are offered by most elementary schools in the district. Kindergarten programs run 475 hours according to provincial guidelines, while playschool hours vary from site-to-site. Program Unit Funding (PUF) is available for 3-year-olds who have severe delays. Programming may also be available for 4-year-olds who have a mild/moderate delay.
