Special Education Plans Changes implemented in September 2010 Sandy Nickerson Learning Specialist, Student Services (Anglophone Sector)
Types of Special Education Plans (SEP-A) Accommodation plan Universal accommodations strategies, technologies or adjustments that enable a student to reach prescribed outcomes and can be used by the teacher / student as needed. Universal accommodations dont necessitate an SEP or prior approval for provincial assessments. (examples :extra time, quiet place, special seating, etc.)
Types of Special Education Plans (SEPS) Justifiable accommodations documented strategies, technologies or adjustments without which the student would not be able to access the curriculum. These accommodations are documented within an SEP and require prior approval to be accessed during provincial assessments.
Types of Special Education Plans (SEP) Examples of Justifiable accommodations: A scribe would be a justified accommodation if the child would not be able to succeed without the accommodation. Extended time would be a justified accommodation if it were more than double the time.
Types of Special Education Plans Modification plan: Some of the grade level curriculum outcomes of a subject area have been changed (or deleted) to address the specific needs of the student. The general intent of the curriculum is maintained but the depth of treatment of the outcomes has been altered or deleted.
Types of Special Education Plan (Modified plan continued) Decisions for modification involve the classroom teacher(s), the resource teacher, the parent/guardian(s), the school-based Student Services Team and the student when possible. Modifications can occur in one or more courses or subjects and are based on the regular curriculum.
Types of Special Education Plan Individualization Requires planning that deviates significantly from the regular curriculum. The student will not be expected to achieve many, if any, of the outcomes of the grade level curriculum. Can involve planning in areas other than educational outcomes (for example, toileting, feeding, dressing, etc).

In order to facilitate appropriate placement at PSI, the Department of Education & Early Childhood Development recognises that it is critical that high school transcripts contain accurate: – course codes – course nomenclature – and where appropriate, an indicator for students with a modified Special Education Plan (SEP-M)
Course Code & Course Name For students in courses that are MODIFIED through Special Education Plans (SEPs), the following changes are made to the course code and name: * The standard code for the course is altered by adding the number 9 as the eight digit in the code. (Example – Modern History 113 is 1010233 but for a student taking a modified version of this course the code would be 10102339) * The standard course name is altered by the addition of an S at the end of the designation. (Example – Canadian History 122 would become Canadian History 122S for a student)
When a student transcript includes 1 or more courses that have an S at the end of the name and a 9 at the end of the code, the Yes checkbox should be selected to indicate that some courses have been modified to meet the needs of the student. In the comment field below the modified flag a school may choose to provide additional information but this is not required.
Accommodations Please note that accommodations are NOT reflected in the course name or code.
Transitioning Students with Diverse Needs – Pilot Project Beginning in the 2012-2013 academic year, EECD will partner with Harvey High School (a demonstration school) and other community-based stakeholders to pilot some evidence informed strategies to assist students with diverse needs as they transition from high school to post-secondary education and/or the world of work.
