Re: BC independent schools special education

As you are looking for the information about the BC independent schools special education funding so for your help I am giving you the information about it:

Special Education Funding
Supplementary special education grants are given to schools so that students, who have special needs, can receive a quality education. Total grants for Group 1 and 2 independent schools in 2010/11 school year are budgeted at $32,000,000. Increases in special education grants over the past several years are primarily due to:
• An overall increase in enrolment to independent schools;
• The opportunity initiated in 2006 for funded independent schools to apply in mid-year for special education funds to cover costs for special needs students new to the school or recently diagnosed with a fundable special needs designation;
• Expansion of the criteria for Autism in July 2006 to include Autism Spectrum Disorder; 2 Independent schools registered 2,057 of the total 2,244 homeschooled students in British Columbia.
• The Fall 2007 expansion of the eligibility criteria for Physically Disabled/Chronic Health Impairments funding category to encompass Complex Developmental Behavioral Conditions, which include fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD);
• March 2010 increases to the grant amounts for special needs FTEs to assist public school boards of education and independent school authorities in meeting the needs of their special needs students.
