The Project background is:
Several classrooms have thresholds which the Teacher’s Aide has difficulty manoeuvring the wheel chair without risking tipping the student.
The Anti-tipping devices on the wheelchair were removed as the Teacher’s Aide could not manoeuver the wheelchair into the classrooms.
The Richie’s Bus has recently been changed to enable the student to be dropped off inside the school property, previously the student was dropped off on the roadside and on many occasions was held in the bus or the admin office until the rain stopped.
The pick-up/ drop-off area for the bus will be modified as part of this project.
Project risks are low as the construction area where the proposed ramp and classroom modifications are to be carried out can be isolated for the duration.
An architectural design will be completed before construction and present to the School Board of Trustees for endorsement.
History: An OT Report has been prepared for a student who requires full time assistance with a Teacher Aide.
