The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board believes in the individual worth of all its students as Children of God and Citizens in a democratic society. As responsible members of our Christian community, we are committed to providing programs for all diverse learners which will enable them to achieve their potential. Some students require extra assistance in order for them to meet their potential and the board provides a spectrum of programs and services to meet the needs of exceptional students.
Dufferin-Peel's process for supporting students with special education needs is modelled on the Continuous Assessment Cycle in the Ministry of Education's Education for All. There are multiple entry points in this cycle based on the needs of the student. For more information, refer to the School Continuous Assessment Cycle.
The Parents' Guide to Special Education Programs outlines the rights and duties of the Board and parents in the identification and placement of exceptional students in accordance with the Education Act. Parents are encouraged to be involved in all phases of this process.
Should you have any specific questions, please direct them to the home school.
