Inclusive Education

March 18, 2024

Inclusion is a way of thinking and acting that allows all individuals, regardless of their gender, abilities, ethnicity or socio-economic status, to feel accepted, valued and safe. An inclusive classroom community evolves to meet the ever changing and diverse needs of students.

Inclusion is not a place, it is a process that requires an understanding of what a student needs to succeed academically, socially and emotionally, and then a plan to address those needs. In Winnipeg School Division, parents/guardians, the school support team and other division staff and community agencies, as required, are involved in this planning process.

Inclusive education means that all students may attend and are welcomed by their community schools in age-appropriate, regular classrooms and are supported to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of the life of the school.
