What do you do if you have a problem at your child's school regarding Inclusion Supports?
Problems can arise in any situation, but can be solved by open discussion and a shared commitment to act in the best interest of the student. The following process ensures that everyone involved has an opportunity to respond to the issue.
The steps to follow:
- Begin by raising your concerns with your child's teacher.
- If you can't resolve the issue by talking to the teacher - contact the school principal.
- If you can't settle the issue - talk to your District Superintendent.
- If you still aren't satisfied with the results - contact the Chief Superintendent.
- Finally, if you feel that all other avenues of support have not provided results that are satisfactory to you, contact the Board of Trustees.
Both informal and formal processes can lead to resolution. Manitoba Education and Training offers two guides for families:
Working Together: A Guide to Positive Problem Solving for Schools, Families and Communities
"The purpose of this guide is to give everyone—parents, educators, and community members alike—the information to take part in the co-operative, creative problem solving process of informal dispute resolution."
Working Together: A Parent's Guide to Formal Dispute Resolution
"This guide outlines the formal review process, describes the issues that qualify for a formal review, and poses some questions to consider when deciding whether a formal review might be appropriate for your situation"
These documents are available on the Manitoba Education and Training website:
