Progress Made Since the Special Education Review, 1998
Joanna Blais, Director of Student Services for Manitoba Education, Citizenship and Youth, provided an overview of the key areas identified in the Special Education Review.
These action areas include:
* Educational Supports
* Human Resources
* Intersectoral Collaboration
Progress in these action areas includes the development and proclamation of the Appropriate Education Act in 2004, followed by the supporting standards and regulations in 2005. In addition, MECY has produced a significant number of policy and support documents that describe appropriate practice in promoting inclusive education at the school division, school and classroom levels.
