Policy 517 Service Dogs for Students
The Education Act includes provisions to address the needs of students with disabilities who have been identified as “exceptional pupils.” School boards must provide special education programs and services to these students.
The Upper Grand District School Board is committed to meeting the educational needs of all students in the board, and to provide accommodations, where possible, to support students who have a disability to access their education program, and/or to fully participate in school.
