The department is committed to providing all Queensland students with disability access to a quality education.
Every student with disability succeeding is the department's plan to ensure every school day, in every state school our teachers and school leaders are maximising outcomes for students with disability.
All schools are required to make
reasonable adjustments to ensure students with disability are able to participate in education on the same basis as students without disability.
The department endorses a whole-school approach to
improving student learning (DOC, 481KB) and provides an array of
support services to meet the educational needs of all students.
The allocation of staffing resources to each school is determined by the identified needs of students. Principals are responsible for the resources provided to their school to support the educational programs of all students.
Teachers are supported through professional development, school-based specialist teachers and regional support services to ensure all students, including students with disability, are able to achieve high quality educational outcomes.
