Langley Special Education Inquiry

The Langley Teachers' Association, CUPE Local 1260 and the Langley District Parent Advisory Council, with support from the BCTF, partnered to conduct an inquiry into learning conditions for students with special needs and teaching and working conditions for special education teachers and special education assistants in School District #35. Representatives from each of the three groups formed a steering committee in the spring of 2007 and the review was underway. An independent panel was commissioned to hear presentations from parents, teachers, teaching assistants and others, and to write a comprehensive report and recommendations. The panelists:

  • received 110 presentations,
  • considered input from focus groups with 89 parents, teachers and support staff participating,
  • studied a detailed analysis of district special education data, and
  • examined a review of relevant research and academic literature conducted by graduate and undergraduate students in the SFU faculty of education.
