EXCLUSION TRACKER 2019/2020: BCEdAccess' Exclusion* Incident Report Form
WHAT AND WHO IS THIS SURVEY FOR?
This survey is for parents and guardians of students with disabilities and/or complex learners in the British Columbia education system. It is intended to document exclusions of students and to encourage the province and school districts to track and examine their own data on exclusions, in order to find the best solutions to this global issue.
The purpose of this survey is to find out more about the practice of exclusion* of students with special needs and/or disabilities from BC bricks and mortar K-12 schools, by surveying parents and guardians of these students on an as-needed basis through the 2019/2020 school year. We conducted this same survey for the first time in the 2018/2019 school year, with mostly the same questions. Response options have been updated to reflect the wide variety of "other" responses received.
*Exclusion is, under the School Act, actually sometimes a suspension and the rules that govern this should be laid out in School Board policy in your District. Ask your school or District why your child has been suspended.
WHAT WILL THE DATA BE USED FOR?
The data collected here will be used to create a series of reports. The reports will be snapshots of the data over time, and will be used to highlight some of the issues and practices that may lead to student exclusion*, from the perspective of the parents and guardians of these students. The reports will be shared with Districts and School Boards, the Ministry of Education, and media.
Your email address will be collected as a method of validating your identity as a human and an individual, but will not be associated with the data when shared in the report. You will not be added to any mailing lists unless you opt in below to the BCEdAccess mailing list, and your contact information will not be shared in any way. All emails except those who opted in to the mailing list will be deleted from any records we may have upon publishing of the survey report. Individual responses will not be given to any third party. Text responses may be shared in the report as standalone quotes if identifying information is not contained within them.
