Toronto District School Board

Special Education Plan

Each school board is required to maintain a Special Education Plan. This plan is reviewed on an annual basis to ensure it meets current needs. Amendments are submitted to the Ministry of Education for review (Regulation 306).

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) Special Education Plan focuses on students and recognizes the unique linguistic, cultural and racial diversity of Toronto schools and communities. The TDSB is committed to the development and implementation of effective special education programs and services that respond to student needs. Special Education is included in the TDSB Integrated Equity Framework Action Plan 2016-2019 and supports the Director of Education’s strategy for improving school effectiveness outlined in A Vision for Learning in TDSB. Special Education resources and services are directed to the schools in order to provide challenging and enriching learning opportunities for students with a wide range of abilities.

We welcome public input on the 2018 Special Education Plan. Input can be submitted in writing from September through March.
