Implementing a Continuum of Supports and Services

Alberta’s inclusive education system is built on a principle based approach. Inclusion is understood as a way of thinking and acting that demonstrates universal acceptance, and belonging and embraces diversity and differences to promote equitable opportunities for each learner. Inclusive education considers how we develop and design our schools, classrooms, programs and instruction so that each learner has the opportunities and supports needed to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of schooling. The goal of inclusive education is to ensure access to high quality education for all learners by effectively meeting their diverse needs in an engaging learning environment and in a way that is responsive, accepting, respectful and supportive.
