Special Education Plan

A special education program is defined in the Education Act as an educational program that:

▪ is based on and modified by the results of continuous assessment and evaluation; and

▪ includes a plan, called and Individual Education Plan (IEP), containing specific objectives and an outline of special education services that meet the needs of the exceptional student.

Special Education Placement Options: Inclusion Philosophy

All teachers share in the responsibility of providing appropriate education for every student in their care. The concept of inclusion is based on the belief that all teachers are "special educators" who differ only in the extent of their training and expertise. The classroom/subject teacher may access resource staff within the school or draw upon the wider resources of the system as the need arises. Fundamental to this process is the collaboration among educators and support staff to deliver a variety of services, programs and strategies to achieve measurable, successful outcomes.
