Edmonton Public Schools is recognized internationally for offering curriculum in ways that complement the unique backgrounds and talents of its students, and is committed to expanding programs wherever it will support and foster student achievement.
The District was selected by Alberta Education to act as a change agent for the Action on Inclusion initiative; to share information about best practices to welcome, include and support students' needs in the classroom and community.
We are proud to take part in the inclusion initiative with the vision of "providing an environment that will allow all students to learn to their full potential and develop the ability, passion and imagination to pursue their dreams and contribute to their communities."
This project identifies the indicators of success in eight selected district schools, capturing these indicators on videotape and in written documentation, which can then be used to build capacity within other schools and school authorities as part of a continuous improvement emphasis.
