Setting the Direction for Special Education in Alberta. Phase 1 - 2008. Discussion Guide
Alberta Education
The purpose of this guide is to provide some background on the Setting the Direction for Special Education in Alberta project. Phase 1 of the project, thoughts are wanted about what an education community that truly meets the needs of each student should look like. Alberta Education wants to create a fresh vision for providing those additional support services and interventions. They also want the principles that should guide education policy decisions to ensure that each young person has the opportunity for success. Phase 2 will take place in February and March 2009 and will see the authors seeking input on options for special education policy, accountability and funding. The Phase 2 consultation will invite Albertans to participate through community meetings (to be once again held across Alberta) and/or through a survey on-line or in print form. The third and final phase of the consultation takes place at a Minister's Forum scheduled for June 8-9, 2009 in Edmonton. More information about Phase 2 of the consultation and the Minister's Forum will be available in the future.
