New provincial funding for additional classroom and specialist teaching positions
across the province provides a unique opportunity to collaborate on ways to
restore classroom supports and ensure the successful inclusion of all students.

  • How prepared do you feel to teach to diverse groups of students?
  • What’s required to ensure that inclusion works for all students and becomes an integral part of our schools’ broader culture?
  • What training and resources are available to help you and your school community respond to these challenges?

  • Leyton Schnellert, Faculty of Education, UBC Okanagan
  • Shelley Moore, M.ED. Instructor, University of BC; Inclusive Education Consultant, Richmond School District
