B. POLICIES

  • WSD will review all programs, services and new initiatives to ensure accessibility.
  • WSD will make information avaiable in an accesible format or provide supports to people with disabilities in a way that considers their disability.

Response to Standards

In response to the Customer Service Standard requirements, the WSD AMA Steering Committee initiated a consultation phase with schools and parent councils to assist in removing barriers to improve customer service.

A template has been filled out by all schools and parent councils. The template will assist in the further development of the Customer Service Training Modules as well as Winnipeg School Division’s Accessibility Plan.

WSD is in the process of assembling a Customer Service sub-committee that will adapt training modules created by various organizations such as: The Access for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and Training modules that University of Manitoba and other participating Manitoban Post-Secondary Institutions have adapted from the AODA with content specific to Winnipeg School Division.

Training modules will be released online with a print version available. Tracking of the training will be done through Employee Connect.
