Tracking exclusion: Incident report form

BCEdAccess is tracking the exclusion of students with special needs in BC schools. This incident report form is for parents and guardians and is meant to be filled out each time a child has been excluded from school.

BCEdAccess, a parent education advocacy group, is tracking incidents of exclusion at BC schools. The group has created an incident report form for parents and guardians of students with special needs. The form is for the 2018/2019 school year.

Inclusion BC is working with BCEdAccess to ensure students with special needs across BC are guaranteed their right to an education. Please share this form with your networks.

TRACKING EXCLUSION: BCEdAccess’ Exclusion Incident Report Form

Exclusion of students with special needs and/or disabilities is a notable problem in BC K-12 schools.

Some aspects of this issue were addressed and documented last year in a survey conducted by BCCPAC. See the results of this survey here:

  • Being sent home
  • Being dropped off late and/or picked up early by bussing services
  • Being excluded from field trips
  • Being excluded from typical learning activities – sent to resource room or sensory/isolation room
