The Greater Essex County District School Board prides itself in the continuum of programs and services offered in support of our learners who have varying strengths and needs.  Our Cascade Model allows for placement of students with exceptional needs in the environment which is least restrictive or most enabling.  The regular class placement is always explored as our first option.  Our staff are dedicated to working with children and youth as an integral part of the school based team. We believe in planned comprehensive programs and services which enrich the lives of learners and are committed to reaching Every Learner – Every Day.
Families are our partners. Our relationship with you is critical to the success of our students during their school years and beyond. Please contact your school Principal with any questions you may have regarding the wealth of programs and services available to students within our Board.
Our Special Education Plan includes detailed information on the programs and services offered by the GECDSB.   2016 Special Education Plan
