The Ministry of Seniors and Accessibility is seeking public feedback on recommendations for improvements in access to education for students with disabilities in Kindergarten to Grade 12 (K-12) and Post-Secondary.
You can help to improve accessibility at school by reading the full report (or sections that are important to you) and completing the online survey. By taking part in the consultation you can let the government know that these recommendations are important.
About the consultation
The proposed standards for K-12 education focus on addressing accessibility barriers in publicly funded K-12 schools. The education accessibility committee has drafted initial recommendations that would inform the government’s work on proposed accessibility standards for K-12 education.
The Ministry is looking for your feedback to help make K-12 education more accessible for students with disabilities. The committee will review all feedback before it submits its final report and recommendations to the Minister for Seniors and Accessibility for consideration.
The initial report contains 197 recommendations that the committee developed.
Technical sub-committee transition recommendations
