The bell is about to ring and signal the start of another school year. Hopefully one with a little more stability and less anxiety for all involved- parents, teachers, students, educational assistants and administrators alike. It’s no secret that our children are going to need support in the aftermath of the pandemic, so we thought it was a good time to re-introduce all things IPRC- The Identification, Placement, and Review Committee (IPRC) Process.
These committees are responsible for identifying special education students and their placement in special education programs.
Particularly important in this information is the parent’s right to request an IPRC meeting. If you feel your child should be reviewed for an IPRC, approach the school’s principal to make a formal request. For more information on the process, click on the Ministry of Education’s information here.
