Please note that lodgement of an application does not ensure enrolment.
Adjustments to support access and participation:
The Disability Discrimination Act, 1992 (DDA) and the Disability Standards for Education, 2005 (DSE) outline the obligations of educators to provide a student with a disability the same educational opportunities as any student without a disability. The Enrolment application and support process (EASP) ensures that students with disability are afforded access to and participation in education on the same basis as other students and that thorough planning for successful transition to school, and support at school, can occur.
The EASP is a consultative and collaborative process that encourages all participants in the education process (e.g., student, parent/legal guardian, teachers, school leadership, student support team and BCE Learning and Teaching Services personnel) to share as partners in consultations to ensure that students with disability are afforded access to and participation in education on the same basis as other students. While the EASP is specific to legislative obligations for students with disability, elements of the process can be useful to support planning for the success of students who do not have disability for whom it is considered likely that adjustments will be required to enable the student to participate in education, and use facilities. The purpose of the EASP is to ensure successful transition and support.
The consultation process seeks to reveal and clarify:
The characteristics of the learner, including functional impact of the disability.
The educational adjustments required for access to learning and participation.
Transition planning in collaboration with school/s, family, and student.
