The Greater Essex County District School Board prides itself on the continuum of programs and services offered to support all of our learners who demonstrate varying strengths and needs.  Our Cascade Model allows for placement of students with exceptional needs in the environment which is least restrictive or most enabling.  The regular class placement is always explored as our first option.  All of our programming incorporates the key goal of developing further independence in all of our students. Our staff are dedicated to working with children and youth as an integral part of the school based team. We believe in planned comprehensive programs and services which enrich the lives of learners and reach Every Learner – Every Day 

Families are our valued partners. Our relationship with you is critical to the success of our students during their school years and beyond. Please contact your school Principal with any questions you may have regarding the myriad of programs and services available to students within our Board.  

Our Special Education Plan includes detailed information on the programs and services offered by the Greater Essex County District School Board.
