All Saskatchewan students have the right to learn in a supportive and stress-free environment
that ensures they have the best possible chance to succeed in school.

EAs provide support to students with intensive needs, including learning disabilities and behaviour concerns.

The Ministry of Education is responsible for ensuring appropriate funding for Education Assistants to maintain
a positive learning environment for all Saskatchewan students.
