About the Student Services Department

Statement of Philosophy for Special Education

The Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board is committed to meeting the needs of all exceptional students. Our Board provides Special Education services in accordance with the Canadian Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, the Education Act and all regulations made under the Act.

The Board is committed to the belief that all teachers are “special” educators.

Each child is unique.

The needs of our exceptional students will be met through programs and services which foster the atmosphere of a Catholic School Community in the most enabling environment.

Parents and guardians play an active role and share responsibility in the education of their children.
