Collaborative curriculum planning

ACE 3004

Last Updated: 29 July 2012

All students with special education needs should be encouraged to choose the most appropriate course of study in keeping with their learning needs, strengths, goals and interests. This is best done in the context of collaborative curriculum planning with the student, parent/carer and other significant individuals in the student's life (eg teachers, learning support personnel and community service providers). Collaborative curriculum planning is appropriate for all students with special education needs and essential for students accessing Years 7–10 Life Skills outcomes and content.

Principals are responsible for the management of this collaborative curriculum planning process.

Schools do not need to send planning documentation to the Board of Studies.
