Education in Saskatchewan promotes the development of responsible and caring people who are equipped to meet the challenges of a complex and rapidly changing world. All students require an approach to education that meets their needs.

The Ministry of Education endorses inclusive practices. As such, all students benefit from being educated with their peers in their home communities. The ministry recognizes some students may require additional education programs, services and interventions to meet their unique strengths and needs.

All students benefit from effective instruction. When provincially developed courses do not meet the needs of the student, educational organizations may provide programs and courses that differ from those that are developed provincially. In this case, educational organizations may offer Additional Education Programs. These include Alternative Education Programs Grade 10, 11 and 12 and Functional Integrated Programs Grade 9, 10, 11 and 12. Educational organizations should have policies and procedures pertaining to the development and implementation of programs, courses and the enrolment of students in such offerings.

Educational organizations are expected to ensure schools consider, prior to using Alternative Education Courses, as many courses in the Regular Education Program as possible. Planning for student success requires flexibility.

The process of ensuring all students receive instruction appropriate to their age and level of educational achievement is a shared responsibility among students, parents, the educational organization and the Ministry of Education.
