The Strategies program is designed to provide intervention for students whose intelligence is measured as average to above average with significant academic delays. LaPerle Elementary School offers two classes, Grades 4/5 and 5/6 combined. Class sizes are smaller at approximately 14 students per class and students receive targeted interventions primarily focused on literacy and numeracy. This is not a regular registered program. Students must qualify (see below) and conversations around registration begin at the students community school. Students attending LaPerle's Strategies classes from outside our school boundaries receive transportation which the community school will help organize with the family.
