We acknowledge the need to commit time, energy, and resources to develop a more equitable system for each of our students and specific educational programming for all students with disabilities.
In accordance with our 2017-22 strategic plan, we remain committed to nurturing equity-based inclusive education opportunities where every child, regardless of their abilities, is valued and given the supports they need to grow and succeed. When all students have the opportunity to learn and interact with each other, everyone benefits.
To that end, we recognize the need for a clear and sustainable plan for transformational district-wide work, specifically focused on both defining our work and the implementation of a system of inclusion and inclusionary practices. We recognize the importance of this mandate in reducing inequities and as a cornerstone of equity and diversity work and disability justice.
