Welcome to the Special Education Parent Site
The Near North District School Board believes that all students have the potential to learn and that all students should progress to the best of their ability.
The Education Act requires that school boards provide special education programs and services for their exceptional pupils. Every effort is made to address the needs of students in a regular classroom in their community school. Some students will need a variety of program modifications and accommodations to their educational program. Other students may require more specialized educational programs and services in order to assist them to reach their full potential.
Parents are important partners in their children’s education. You are encouraged to meet frequently with the school team to discuss the educational program being planned and delivered.
One of the goals of the SEAC Committee is to develop a stronger link with our parent community groups. In order to help us achieve this goal, we surveyed our parents in 2009 so that we can gain meaningful information that will help us plan for the future.
