Council for Inclusive Education
Name changed from Special Education Council to Council for Inclusive Education December 2014.
The Council for Inclusive Education (CIE) seeks to advance the education of students with special needs and to improve the teaching practices and resources of those working on behalf of special needs students throughout Alberta.
To carry out its mandate, the CIE liaises with government agencies and other groups to influence the development of provincial and local policies and to ensure that such policies enhance the education of special needs students. The Council works to increase public awareness of the necessity for education for special needs students and encourages and supports educators with new and innovative ideas.
Through its annual conference, the Council provides opportunities for networking and for professional development. In addition, the Council holds an annual award ceremony to recognize outstanding individual service to students with special needs.
The CIE publishes The Inclusive Educator newsletter (formerly The Special Educator).
Contact information for the executive members of the Council for Inclusive Education is provided to assist the ATA in conducting its professional and business affairs.
