“The smallest meaningful unit of inclusion is the school.” – Melody Musgrove (2015)

The focus of the SET-BC Inclusive Schools Initiative is to explore the question, “What would a truly inclusive school look like?” We are looking to strategically partner with districts and schools in a multi-year initiative to collaboratively plan and develop strategies for improving the inclusion of all students at the school-wide level. Registered users of the Inclusive Schools Initiative Blog may submit stories and images here. These schools are currently contributing to the initiative:

  • A.D. Rundle Middle School
  • Gold River Secondary School
  • Lake Trail Middle School
  • North Glenmore Elementary School
  • R.L. Angus Elementary School
  • Signal Hill Elementary School
