LRSD Begins an Initiative for Students with Special Needs

February 16, 2016

​​​​​​​​Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning recently announced that as part of the planning to implement the recommendations of the Provincial Task Force on Special Needs Funding​, the Louis Riel School Division will begin an initiative in eight schools for students with special needs in 2016-2017. The schools participating are: Glenlawn Collegiate, Collège Béliveau, École St. Germain, Windsor School, Glenwood School, Samuel Burland School, H.S. Paul School, St. George School. 

This new initiative will work to engage parents and staff in a more efficient and collaborative process to support students with special needs and will eliminate the deficit-focused funding application process. 

Applications for funding to Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning for the majority of students with special needs will no longer be required. Students who currently receive student-specific funding will continue to be supported under the new model.  

The initiative will support voluntary province wide implementation in 2017-2018 and complete implementation in 2018-2019. 

We are proud to be part of this initiative and look forward to this opportunity to work together for positive system change.​
