Regulation 306, made under the authority of the Education Act, requires every school board to maintain a special education plan. As set out in the standards in this part of the guide, the special education plan shall be made available to the ministry for review and be publicly accessible. In Part B, the main text of the original policy document entitled Standards for School Boards' Special Education Plans (2000) has been reproduced in full. That is, the standards remain unchanged. Three of the appendices from the original document are also placed in Part B; the rest of the appendices are placed at the end of the parts in the present document to which they are now most closely related. Some terminology has been updated as necessary. Cross references to information in other parts of the present document have been added where needed.
