Exceptional & Special Needs

Exceptional and special needs students are an incredibly diverse group, from Indigenous students, to English Language Learners (ELL), Gifted & Talented (GATE) students, to students with learning difficulties, students with mental health challenges, and students balancing education with parenting.  The spectrum of student needs outside of typical requirements is wide and there is never a one size fits all solution to ensure that each student is being supported on their journey to academic success.

EducationMatters donors help to make each Calgary Board of Education (CBE) school a place where all students have the opportunity to find their own success and learn in ways that are appropriate to them.  From supporting CBE’s annual Pow Wow, to funding programs for parenting teens or providing sensory supports, donor funds are making a difference to students with additional needs every day. Your support will help these students make their own success both today and tomorrow.
