Regional Collaborative Service Delivery

A new provincial model for the delivery of specialized learning supports and services is making it easier for children, youth and their families to get the assistance that they need. At the start of the 2014-2015 school year the Government of Alberta divided the province into 17 Regional Collaborative Service Delivery (RCSD) Regions.

Northland Schools are divided into four regions: 

Peace Country RCSD:

Dr. Mary Jackson School
Little Buffalo School
Paddle Prairie School
Susa Creek School

Cheryl Brown - Regional Manager for Peace Country RCSD - cheryl.brown@gppsd.ab.ca

Northern Lakes RCSD:

Bishop Routhier School
Chipewyan Lake School
Gift Lake School
Grouard Northland School
Hillview School
Kateri School
Mistassiniy School
Peerless Lake School
Pelican Mountain School
St. Theresa School
Calling Lake School

Locally services will be coordinated and provided by Peace Collaborative Services. Under the new model, school authorities along with community based partner agencies, Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the Government Ministries of Human Services and Education work together, on a regional basis, to meet the identified needs of children and youth.

In keeping with the collaborative focus, Regional Collaborative Service Delivery resources are shared. Supports can include, but are not limited to: mental health supports, speech-language therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, supports for the visually impaired, deaf and hard of hearing.

The new model encompasses previous service delivery models including the Student Health Initiative Program (SHIP) and Regional Educational Consulting Service Teams (CASE).
