Abstract
Effective schools are educationally inclusive schools, in which the teaching, learning, achievements, attitudes, and well-being of every person are of almost importance. However, it has been observed that some schools do not meet up the set standard for inclusiveness as a result of some implementation challenges. Thus, this study sought to explore the impediments/challenges faced by teachers in the implementation of the policy of Screening, Identification, Assessment, and Support (SIAS) in schools. The researchers adopted a participatory action research design using three schools selected from Motheo District. An interview guide was used to collect data from teachers and School-Based Support Team (SBST) coordinators, and district officials. Data were analysed thematically and it was found that SIAS as one of the Inclusive Education policies is not effectively implemented as a result of several challenges. Such challenges facing the implementation of SIAS policy include attitudes towards SIAS, lack of knowledge and understanding of SIAS, lack of support to learners and teachers, inadequate teacher training in SIAS policy. These implicate the expertise of educational evaluators in that they will use the findings of this study to come up with appropriate strategies to handle these existing impediments. The researchers, therefore, recommend that these identified challenges should be appropriately taken care of to ensure effective implementation of the policy of Screening, Identification, Assessment, and Support (SIAS) in schools

Key words: Explore, Impediments, Implementation, Policy of screening, identification, assessment and support
