Term: Independent Schools
Last Updated: 2012-10-16
This group of schools includes homeschooling, funded and non-funded schools that may be affiliated with a specific religious or denominational group. Independent schools have their own governing bodies or boards, and their operation varies. "Independent schools are eligible for provincial funding if they implement the Manitoba curriculum, [hire Manitoba certified teachers,] and meet a number of additional requirements. Non-funded independent schools may not follow provincial curricula but must deliver a standard of education to that provided in a public school. Only funded independent schools are authorized to issue Senior Years course credits recognized by Manitoba Education."
