The PLACE Program at Clover Bar stands for, "Practical Learning and Community Education". Students in the program have moderate cognitive disabilities and programming focuses on academic skills that are applied in daily life and increase knowledge of the community and the world. Students also develop work skills and a work ethic, independent basic life skills, social skills and appropriate behaviour for a variety of environments.
Putting high and appropriate expectations in place for all students leads them to experience success, and continually develop skills and knowledge. Programming for adolescents develops increasing independence and application of skills that could be used at home, school, the community or at work. Learning occurs in both the community and the classroom. All students in the PLACE Program are on Individual Program Plans.
