ETT needs some information very quickly from the school level about staffing for Special Education next year. Specifically, we need information concerning the HSP/Resource delivery model and the implementation of the integration model in your school.
We understand from the TDSB that next year HSP will no longer be available for Grade 1 students and those students will be integrated into regular classes and given support. But we have also been assured by the Board that changes to the HSP/Resource delivery model beyond this Grade 1 student change need to have the support of staff before moving forward.
ETT and Special Education Teachers will be meeting with representatives of the TDSB on Thursday, April 6, 2017 and we would like feedback on what is happening in your staffing process for next September where Special Education supports are concerned.
If your HSP/Resource support model is changing next year, please email your Executive Officer back with the following information by no later than Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at 3:00 p.m.
- Name of your school
- Changes to your HSP/Resource model
- Whether these changes were done with the input and support of ETT members/through the Staffing Committee process
- Any other information you’d like to provide
