Back-to-School Information




Welcome to Dr. Oakley School

Dr. Oakley School is a unique Calgary Board of Education program for students with complex learning disabilities. This middle school provides a short term intensive literacy program. The goal of the school is to assist each child in gaining skills, knowledge, and competencies to reach their academic, social, and emotional potential.

Welcome Back

The first weeks of school are always an exciting time for students and staff. It is a wonderful time to catch up on summer events, make new friends and welcome back returning students and staff. Everyone at Dr. Oakley is off to a great start! We were pleased to welcome staff, students and parents and have the opportunity to share many stories and adventures from summer holidays.
This year we have 155 students which are organized into eight teaching and learning communities. Each student will have a ‘responsibility’ teacher who will develop the student’s Individualized Program Plan (IPP). It is an expectation, however, that all teachers within the team learning community have instructional responsibility for all students. With regard to supervision, safety on the playground, around the hallway and bussing, all staff members have a commitment to every student’s safety and well-being at Dr. Oakley.
We have had a great beginning to the new school year and look forward to working together.
