Inclusive Education Policy
(Alberta Education, Guide to Education, 2015)
Alberta’s education system is built on a values-based approach to accepting responsibility for all children and students. Inclusion is a way of thinking and acting that demonstrates universal acceptance of, and belonging for, all children and students.
To support children and students in attaining the goals as stated in the Ministerial Order on Student Learning, school authorities must ensure that all children and students (Kindergarten to Grade 12), regardless of race, religious belief, colour, gender, gender identity, gender expression, physical disability, mental disability, family status or sexual orientation, or any other factor(s), have access to meaningful and relevant learning experiences that include appropriate instructional supports.
For more information, see Supporting Every Student on the Alberta Education website.
To support meaningful access and relevant learning experiences, Edmonton Catholic Schools offers a variety of programming choices for their students. Flexible, in and out programming, and multiple pathways to meet student and family needs is offered.
