About the OSETs
The two Ontario Special Education Tribunals (OSETs) hear appeals by parents and guardians who are not satisfied with the school board’s identification or placement of a child with exceptional learning needs.
The OSET- English hears appeals from decisions made by English Public and Catholic School Boards. The OSET - French hears appeals from decisions made by French Public and Catholic School Boards.
The OSETs hear appeals only after parents have completed all possible appeals at the school board level under the Education Act.
The OSETs are two of the eight tribunals that make up Social Justice Tribunals Ontario (SJTO).
