Alberta Education is conducting a comprehensive review of special education entitled: Setting the Direction for Special Education in Alberta. Phase 1 of this review is gathering stakeholder information from the public. The goal is to generate a vision and principles that will shape future policy, funding and accountability for Special Education in Alberta. The purpose of this ERC-hosted consultation is to ensure that the critical voices of families are heard.

You are encouraged to find out more about the review on Alberta Education’s website: www.settingthedirection.alberta.ca. We strongly suggest that you download the discussion guide, read it over and bring it with you to the consultation. This document will form the basis for the consultation discussions that evening. If you are unable to join us on December 1, please take the time to be involved. Visit the Alberta Education website to find out how to:
