Special Education Policy Documents

Various ministry policy documents contain policy statements affecting special education and exceptional pupils.

Funding policy documents are discussed on the page Funding for Special Education. Note that the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) has responsibility for provincial testing at the Grade 3, 6, and 9 levels, and for the provincial secondary school literacy test. EQAO provides guidance to school boards concerning the inclusion of exceptional pupils in provincial testing and on appropriate accommodations that may be made for these students during the tests.
