School District No. 83 (North Okanagan – Shuswap) strives to create an inclusive learning environment where all students are meaningfully engaged in learning. The Board of Education is committed to the philosophy of inclusion which is founded on the belief that all students should be educated in neighborhood schools, in regular classrooms, and in age appropriate settings to the maximum extent possible. We embrace the notion that diversity is the norm, not the exception, and we celebrate the gifts and talents that we believe all students possess.
The District offers a continuum of support for students to maintain our commitment to ensuring equitable and meaningful educational experiences for all.
