Section 23 Education Programs (Care and-or Treatment, Custodial and Correctional Facilities) Protocol


As directed by the Ministry of Education, the education of school-aged pupils must not suffer if they are required to attend government approved facilities for care and/or treatment, custodial or correctional needs. As far as possible, these pupils should attend regular or special education classes in local schools. However, in cases where pupils are not able to attend local schools because of their exceptional needs, suitable educational programs that recognize the primacy of care and/or treatment, custodial or correctional needs may be provided by the school board within the facilities.
