This text analyzes the institutional movements that characterize the politic of scholar inclusion in Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The systemic thinking and the policy cycle constitute the theoretical framework that helped us to examine school enrollment, normative documents, academic production and interviews. The research allowed us to identify not only the expansion of the access and permanence of students with disabilities, but also the services that favor their schooling in common classes - an indication of a practice centered on collaborative teaching regarding the access to the curriculum.
