Students in Classroom

Section 23 Classroom

The Section 23 Program provides service for students unable to attend regular or special education classes within a community school. The Peel District School Board (PDSB) and AYSP jointly deliver Section 23 classroom programs in two Peel secondary schools. These programs are designed to address the students’ individual academic, social and emotional needs, provide stabilization and treatment, and assist the home school in developing education plans/programs upon discharge. Each student is on an individualized and flexible program with respect to academics, length of stay in the program and transition options.

Inclusionary Criteria:

  • Grade 9 and 10 students (under the age of 17) who have exhausted the resources at their home school
  • Youth moving from outside of the region and who are unknown to the Peel District School Board
  • Youth coming out of custody between semesters
