Coast Mountains School District 82 supports equitable access to education for all learners, while honouring the diversity that each learner contributes to our society.  Our school district is committed to inclusive education where all learners receive high-quality education in a setting that is most enabling and least restrictive.  It is a place where all students are entitled to learn together in an inclusive environment, where each student is valued, can reach their full potential, and diversity is celebrated.

The Inclusive Education Team is a diverse department focused on teacher and student learning.  Working together with families, school teams, and community agencies, the Inclusive Education staff provide support and services to schools to meet the academic, physical, and emotional needs of students.  Our team consists of School Psychologists (contracted), Speech Language Pathologists, a Teacher of the Deaf or Hard of Hearing, a Teacher of the Visually Impaired, a Teacher of English Language Learning, and Inclusive Education Teachers trained to support students with diverse abilities.

Service delivery consists of a variety of both school-based and school district-wide resources and services.  Schools and all school district staff work together to offer diverse learner programs and services, presented in the most enabling educational environment, to support students in their development as successful learners.  Services are readily accessible through the School Team.  For more information, please contact the Classroom Teacher, the Resource Teacher or the School Administrator.
