Question 05

Olive Crane gives notice that she will ask the Minister responsible for Education the following questions:

Date Submitted : November 14, 2014

In some classroom's there is a very wide range in student ability to progress at the grade level the student is in. Are the numbers of students requiring individual learning plans in classrooms increasing? Can the Minister outline what his Department is doing to address and support the teacher who has to be able to teach all students in the classroom? Where a school has reduced the numbers of teachers and educational assistants and a class size has increased for the teacher, what supports are in place for the teacher to provide assistance to the struggling students?


Date answered : November 26, 2014
The number of students on individual education plans (lEPs) has increased over the past three years but not significantly.

There is a continuum of individualized planning and some students require very involved planning while others require less intensive interventions - both need to be documented as individualized planning.

Students who are on individualized plans may be supported at the classroom, school board, and department level.

Classroom: by the classroom teachers, educational assistants, resource teachers (through direct instruction or consultative support to classroom teachers)

School Board: by Board-based consultants such as inclusive education and autism consultants, as well as diagnostic specific supports.

Department: schools may request depal1ment-level interventions with specific issues, such as instructional strategies for teaching certain aspects of the curriculum.
