Inclusive Education Programming - Katholos
In keeping with our Catholic tradition of universal inclusivity, Thomas Groome reminds us that the word “catholic” comes from the Greek word “Katholos” which means “welcoming all” - just as Jesus did.
Inclusion is one of the foundational tenets of Edmonton Catholic Schools. For decades, inclusive education has been the first choice in programming in the district, as reflected in the following district policy:
“Flexibility to adapt to the changing needs of students is an important feature of inclusive education programming. Specific delivery models for individualized programs may vary from class to class and from school to school depending on the needs of the individual students attending.”
