Pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion be­gins on in­clu­sive ed­u­ca­tion

The Victoria Standard - - Local News - PROV­INCE

The Com­mis­sion on In­clu­sive Ed­u­ca­tion's pub­lic en­gage­ment phase starts on Tues­day, Nov. 21, with pub­lic work­shops, an on­line sur­vey and other ways for peo­ple to share their sto­ries.

"We know there are lots of fam­i­lies, teach­ers, stu­dents and oth­ers who have been look­ing for­ward to this phase of our work," said Sarah Shea, chair of the com­mis­sion. "We are pleased to launch the pub­lic en­gage­ment with nu­mer­ous ways for peo­ple to par­tic­i­pate."

Nova Sco­tians can par­tic­i­pate in the fol­low­ing ways:

-- fill in the on­line sur­vey from Nov. 21 to Dec. 15

-- reg­is­ter for one of the pub­lic work­shops. Space is lim­ited, so pre-reg­is­tra­tion is re­quested.

-- share your story by pre­par­ing a short video, of two to three min­utes or write your vi­sion of a new model of in­clu­sive ed­u­ca­tion to help the com­mis­sion un­der­stand what is work­ing, what is not, and what is pos­si­ble

A multi-site fran­co­phone ses­sion, via video­con­fer­ence, is planned for Nov. 29, at 6:30 p.m. in part­ner­ship with Con­seil sco­laire aca­dien pro­vin­cial. De­tails on how to par­tic­i­pate will be posted on the com­mis­sion's web­site.

"The in­put gath­ered through all forms of pub­lic en­gage­ment will guide all as­pects of this im­por­tant work on be­half of the chil­dren and youth of Nova Sco­tia," said Ms. Shea. "To­gether we will cre­ate a new pro­vin­cial vi­sion and model for in­clu­sive ed­u­ca­tion."
