Have You Filled Out The Manitoba Inclusive Education Survey?
Education Solutions Manitoba and Barrier Free Manitoba want to ensure that every Manitoban who is involved with disability and education systems is made aware of, and has the chance to complete, the surveys by the deadline for responses (December 15, 2017).
If you are a member of one of these groups, please complete the applicable survey today.
- Student (Grade 7 to post-secondary):
- Parent/family of a student with a disability
- Education staff/official
A survey takes as little as five minutes to complete. For persons wanting to provide detailed responses, completing a survey might take as long as 30 minutes. The surveys are anonymous and we will not be gathering any identifying information from respondents (unless they wish to receive updates on developments related to the accessible education standard).
A report will be developed and released early in 2018.
