Earlier this week, the Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility released the Final Recommendations Report from the K–12 Education Standards Development Committee (ESDC) regarding the development of a proposed K–12 Education Standard under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA). The report contains many recommendations on addressing barriers in the public education system.

OPSBA staff will be connecting with the government and the Ontario Human Rights Commission with a goal of ensuring our member school boards are provided with a clear timeline and supports for implementation when/if the recommendations are accepted by the government.
