The Ministry of Education is surveying parents, students, and educators about how to support special education needs and accessible education. This survey will help to inform the implementation of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, and its goal of an accessible Ontario by 2025. This accessibility standard will help us address barriers in education that prevent children and students from reaching their full potential.

Ministry of Education Accessibility Consultation
Alta Vista and Hunt Club Accommodation Review Starts September 2017
The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) has finalized the Western and Eastern Accommodation Reviews, which culminated in decisions to close 6 elementary schools in the west and Rideau HS in the east.
The Alta Vista and Hunt Club Accommodation Review is now set to start September 2017 which is a delay from its original proposed start date of April 2017. It will probably have the same timelines as the previous accommodation reviews which means the final decision will happen early in March 2018.
