When enrolling a student with a disability and adjustments will be required to enable the student to participate in the curriculum, and use facilities, on the same basis as students without a disability.
The EASP is not to be applied for reconsideration of enrolment. The Disability Standards for Education (2005) specifically state that in relation to a student with a disability who is enrolled in an educational institution.
The education provider must take reasonable steps to ensure that the student is able to participate in the courses or programs provided by the educational institution, and use facilities and service provided by it, on the same basis as a student without a disability, and without experiencing discrimination (p.19).
In these circumstances, principals would engage their student support team and Education Officer/Consultant – Inclusive Education.
There are multiple stages in the EASP. Each stage is outlined in detail in the Enrolment Application and Support Process.
A copy of the procedure is available by contacting the Enrolment Secretary.
