Accommodating Students with Exceptional Needs in Charter Schools
Alberta Education
This document is intended to assist charter schools in providing accommodations for students with exceptional needs, while acknowledging the importance of the charter approved by the Minister, local autonomy, flexibility and choice. This document is organized into the following four areas: (1) Access to Accommodations (the provision of accommodations that enable and improve the learning of students); (2) Appropriateness of Accommodations (the design of accommodations, provided by certificated staff, around the needs of the student); (3) Accountability for Programming (the obligation to answer for the execution of one's assigned responsibilities); (4) Appeals (the use of timely, fair and open processes that protect the rights of students and parents and address differences of opinion about the education of those students).
