Our board is committed to provide students, staff and members of the community with an accessible environment for teaching and learning in all of our schools and board offices.
Accessibility Plan 2015/16
That is why we have developed a multi-year Accessibility Plan, in accordance with the Integration Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR) under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), 2005.
The Plan describes the measures that our board will implement over the five-year period from 2012-2017 to identify, remove and prevent barriers to people with disabilities who work, learn and participate in our community.
The objectives of the plan are to:
Describe the process by which the board will identify, remove and prevent barriers;
Review recent efforts of the board to remove and prevent barriers;
Describe the measures the board’s plans to take in the period 2012 – 2017 to identify, remove and prevent barriers;
Makes a commitment to provide an annual status report on the board’s implementation of the Multi-year Accessibility Plan;
Makes a commitment to review and update the Multi-year Accessibility Plan annually;
Describes how the board will make this Multi-year Accessibility Plan available to the public.
We encourage you to review the Multi-year Accessibility Plan document, which is located in the Policies and Procedures section of the website - once there, simply type Accessibility in the "Find Text" field.
Looking For Your Feedback on Accessibility
We are also committed to supporting the use of assistive devices and believe that people with disabilities should have the same opportunities to access our services, regardless of location.
For this purpose we have created a Feedback Form so you can provide us with information to guide the Board's Accessibility Planning Committee.
