Diversity – Inclusion issues

This school represents the legal and administrative union of two schools - one Bosniak and one Croatian and it is fully integrated into one larger entity that is multiethnic and multicultural  in all respects. Both the school staff, Board and Parents' councils are multiethnic and are commonly making all decisions regarding the school. School recognizes that there is a lack of adequate infrastructure and funds for creating a better and friendlier working environment, due to the lack of space and assistive technologies and didactic materials.

Level of inclusive practices/experience

This school has been participating in the  Save the Children pilot program for the Index for Inclusion and staff and management have been trained in how to work with the children with special educational needs. There is positive attitude and motivation in school for improving conditions for inclusive education.
