Our 2022-23 Tracker is now live! Use the FULL SURVEY to report the FIRST incidence of exclusion of the school year. Use the REPEAT SURVEY to report any more exclusions that happen during the school year, as many times as needed. It’s much shorter and this is intended to make it simpler to report continuously on exclusions happening.
Report your exclusion if you are a K-12 student, or report on the exclusion of your child/youth from their edcuation if you are their parent/guardian. Exclusion here is defined as you see it – whether it’s being asked to keep your child/youth home, attend part days, miss a field trip, etc. This survey also takes you through the path back to inclusion – steps you can take to advocate for better inclusion. It also offers the opportunity for your child/youth to provide their feedback in a section just for them.
Our 2021-22 Exclusion Tracker Report is out:
– This year’s Exclusion Tracker report shows BC children and youth with disabilities missed thousands of days of school, were left without support or instruction, were left out of field trips, clubs and events, were secluded and restrained, and numbers haven’t improved over 4 years of collecting and sharing data.
Since September 4, 2018 BCEdAccess has been collecting data on the exclusion of students with disabilities from schools in BC.
BCEdAccess is run by and for families of students with disabilities and those who are complex learners. Exclusion has always been the number one topic in our private parent/guardian forum. Many of us were told that our circumstances were rare or unusual, and if we could just be patient it would be resolved – but how could that be, when so many of us were talking about it daily? In 2018, this led to the creation of our Exclusion Tracker, to provide a place for parents/guardians to create “incident reports” regarding the exclusion of disabled &/or complex-learner children and youth.
