Inclusion. We all need it – especially after nearly 2 years apart due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We all want it. And, together, we can rebuild inclusion in our school communities.
Since its inception in 2001, Inclusive Schools Week has celebrated the progress that schools have made in providing a supportive and quality education to an increasingly diverse student population, including students who are marginalized due to disability, gender, race, socio- economic status, cultural heritage, language preference and other factors. Inclusive Schools Week also provides an important opportunity for educators, students and parents to discuss what else needs to be done in order to ensure that their schools continue to improve their ability to successfully educate and engage all children.
In partnership with Kids Included Together, we are excited to offer a downloadable activity guide of materials for educators to use in their classrooms during inclusive schools week.
