The Special Education Program (SEP) strives to support First Nations schools in meeting the needs of all of their students. 

Principals and SEP Teachers from BC First Nations schools are invited to come to the SEP Regional Workshops to learn more about the program and the services involved. Practical instruction on how to submit SEP documents on behalf of our school will be included. It is also an excellent opportunity to meet with staff who support the program and to ask questions relating to your school’s special education needs.
