New guidelines released for Dubai private schools

Further steps are being taken to ensure all private schools in Dubai cater to students with special educational needs by 2020.

The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) has issued a guidebook to help schools implement the changes.

It covers procedures related to admissions, assessments, staffing and resources.

Schools are also required to form inclusion support teams to ensure a smooth transition.

The changes are in line with the government’s efforts to turn Dubai into one of the friendliest cities in the world for people of determination.

Talking to ARN News, Richard Drew, Principal at Jumeira Baccalaureate School, explains some of the changes
