National Inclusive Education Recognition Award 2015

What is inclusive education?

Inclusive education means ensuring that all students are educated with their peers, have equitable access to learning and achievement, and are welcomed, valued and supported in the education system. Inclusive education promotes participation, friendship and interaction.

Why do we have a recognition award?

We highlight national inclusive education each year to bring attention to the positive examples of inclusive classrooms, activities and schools in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Canadian Association for Community Living (CACL) has created a national certificate of recognition to be bestowed upon recipients who have made positive contributions to inclusive education in each province and territory throughout Canada.

Who can be nominated?

The Newfoundland and Labrador Association for Community Living will award one recognition certificate in 2015. An individual (ex: teacher, student, principal, volunteer), a school or post-secondary institution that are deemed worthy of the award for making a positive contribution to inclusive education are eligible to be nominated. Parents, friends, family, staff, students, schools can nominate an individual or school for this award.
