    Alternative Education

    Saskatchewan’s education system is founded on shared values, actions and commitment to addressing the needs of individual learners using a Student First approach. The Ministry of Education embraces a Student First approach to education that puts the student front and centre.
    The needs of most secondary level students can be met through the Regular Education Program. Within the Secondary Level Regular Education Program there are three course options:

    • Provincial core curriculum
    • Locally modified courses
    • Locally developed courses.

    In order to meet the needs of students who may require a qualitatively different program, school divisions may offer Additional Education Programs that include:

    • Alternative Education Programs
    • Functional Integrated Programs.

    School divisions have the responsibility to make choices that will best serve the students in their jurisdictions.
