Accessibility of School Buildings

WCDSB is committed to providing school buildings which are accessible to the students with Special Education needs.   Historically, the Board responded to these needs by providing the necessary modifications to a school or transporting the student to the most accessible school closest to the student’s home school boundary.

During the school year 2000-01, the Ministry of Education amended Regulation 446/98 to provide boards with a one-time grant intended to provide improved access to its facilities for students with Special Education needs.   Since that time WCDSB has developed and maintained a multi-year Accessibility Plan that is responsive to its accommodation master plan and its functional equity plan.  The Accessibility Plan provides information on the Board’s progress in implementing capital improvements and accessibility improvement plans over a specified span of years.
