Special Education Funding

The Halton District School Board (HDSB) spends more on Special Education than the amount provided by the Ontario Ministry of Education.

In 2014-15, the Ontario Ministry of Education announced  a new funding model for a component of the Special Education Grants. At the end of the four-year phase-in, the net impact to the HDSB is a loss in excess of $20 million annually despite the growth in the number of students requiring special education support.

I will do my part and advocate on your behalf. You can also help by contacting your MPP directly to request they advocate for FAIR & TRANSPARENT funding for the Halton District School Board.
