Leadership, Learning and Special Education

At the Toronto District School Board, our goal is to provide students with special education needs with equity of access to learning opportunities. We focus on student achievement, well-being and equity, and on the creation of a more inclusive system of education. This requires some changes to the way we currently support students with special education needs.

In order to meet the needs of all students in a unified and more collaborative manner, our Teaching and Learning and Special Education/Section 23 Departments will become one department called the Leadership and Learning Department. This change will become effective by the start of the new school year (September 2018).

We will continue with congregated schools and Intensive Support Programs (ISP) as options for those students who would be best served by this model while we implement a more inclusive model.

The Leadership and Learning Department, led by an associate director, an executive superintendent and a superintendent, will be responsible for the outcomes of all students, including students with special needs.

Within the Leadership and Learning Department, we will continue having special education expertise. In addition, we are committed to providing on-going professional learning opportunities to our staff to help them support students with special education needs.

Our Mission
To enable all students to reach high levels of achievement and well-being
and to acquire the knowledge, skills
and values they need to become responsible, contributing members of
a democratic and sustainable society.
