Inclusive Schools Week

Graphic that reads: Stand up Sit Tall for Inclusion. Inclusive Schools Week. December 4-8, 2017

Not long ago, many children were excluded from classrooms – left out due to race, language, economic status, or mental or physical challenges. In the past 20 years, our schools have worked toward access for ALL to public education. Children who were once isolated and marginalized are now thriving members of a larger school community. Children who were routinely denied educational opportunities are now discovering, exploring, and achieving. While these inclusive practices have been, at times, difficult to implement, their positive impact is clearly demonstrated through each individual success. We want to take time to recognize these successes and celebrate the teachers, EAs, SEAs, building staff, administrators, families and community advocates for all of their work ensuring MPS is a great place to learn for ALL students. While noting that there is more to be done, let’s applaud the progress being made every day toward building more inclusive schools and communities.
