It is a requirement for each school to do an annual IRPC review for all students who are identified as Exceptional in the Upper Grand School Board.  Meetings will take place on May 7th and 8th this year.  It is not mandatory that parents attend these meetings, however if you would like to book an appointment time, please click the link below.  You will need your child's birth date and OEN number (OEN appears on the letter sent home and on report cards and student ID cards). Note:  You would have received a letter home from the school if this is something that you should be doing.  These meetings are only for Special Education students who have IPRC's. Please read the following directions before trying to book your appointment.
  • Once you enter your child's OEN and birth date, you will see a list of teachers - choose teacher Kim Cozzolino (this is the only one that will work)
  • Click Show Appointment Schedule (to the left of the page)
  • when the list of times appears, click the appointment time you would like
  • Click Book Appointment
  • You will not receive any further notification - you should come to the ODSS for the appointment on the date and time you have booked.
  • If you have questions or need assistance booking your appointment, call 519-941-0491, ext. 221

This is a message from the Town of Orangeville, Orangeville Police Service and ODSS.
One of the challenges that exist every year is the traffic congestion in the areas around our schools. For short periods of time in the morning and again in the afternoon most school zones in Orangeville are congested with a combination of vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
The traffic in the area of ODSS is a combination of student, parent and neighbourhood vehicles, as well as school buses. The congestion is of concern to not only ODSS and Orangeville Police, but to the residents that live in the area of the school as well. The Town of Orangeville has clearly posted signage that indicates various NO PARKING and NO STOPPING areas around ODSS.
Town of Orangeville By-Laws indicate NO STOPPING/PARKING on Faulkner St (front of the school) and Fead St/Northman Way (south side of the school). Please make yourself familiar with these areas and be advised that the Orangeville Police Service will enforce these by-laws by issuing tickets to violators. We recommend using the parking lot of the Tony Rose Sports Centre to pick up or drop off students. In addition, the signs in the school driveway at the front entrance of ODSS indicate NO PARKING/NO STOPPING as this area is restricted to buses and vehicles for persons with special needs. 
Thank you for your cooperation.
