Tevie Miller Heritage School Society
The Tevie Miller Heritage School Society is a not for profit organization that supports the Tevie Miller Heritage School Program, an Edmonton Public School "Program of Choice", that specializes in teaching children with speech and/or language delays, disabilities or disorders. The Society facilitates the provision of enhanced speech-language services that cannot be paid for from the educational allocation that the school recieves from Alberta Education. The Society collects and allocates funds necessary for enhanced speech and language services at the Tevie Miller Heritage School Program. These service are paid for from monies received from parent fees, fundraising, donations, Alberta Health Services and private benefactors.
In 1989, The Heritage School Society was formed to establish and maintain The Heritage School. The Heritage School; a Centre for Language and Learning Development for children with speech, language and literacy delays and/or disorders. The school operated as a private school until 1996 when The Heritage School Society entered into an agreement with Edmonton Public Schools, where by the school was designated a "Program of Choice". Under this agreement, The Heritage School Society agreed to provide speech, language and literacy services to students attending the School Program. In 1997, the name of the school was named to Tevie Miller Heritage School Program to honor the late Justice Tevie Miller. The Society name was changed in the fall of 1998.
