About the SWD Evaluation and Action Plan
The final action plan is expected to be presented to the School Board at the December 20 meeting.
The evaluation of services to students with disabilities was conducted to provide a comprehensive review of the current state of programs and services for students with disabilities and their families and to inform the division and relevant stakeholders in areas of strengths and opportunities for improvement. Key stakeholder groups have been represented throughout the process ranging from the development of the guiding research questions and the Request for Proposals (RFP) process to the ongoing work of developing an action plan in response to the findings of the report.
