Special Education Plan

Each school board in Ontario is required to maintain a Special Education Plan, containing an outline of the Special Education programs and services provided by the board. We must review it annually with SEAC, and we submit it annually to the Ministry of Education. For more information on Special Education Plans, visit the Ministry's website at http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/general/elemsec/speced/iepstand/iepstand.html

We welcome feedback and input on our Special Education Plan at any time. You may contact:

  • a SEAC representative by clicking on the link to the left for a list of members
  • your child's principal
  • any person on the list of contact names also on in the contact list in the links to the left
