Inclusive Schools Week highlights and celebrates the progress our schools have made in providing a supportive and quality education to all students, particularly those who have disabilities and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
The Week also provides an important opportunity for educators, students, and families to discuss what else needs to be done in order to ensure that their schools continue to improve their ability to successfully educate all children and youth.
A Celebration Kit includes everything you will need to plan a celebration in your school or community: publications that speak to the benefits of inclusive schools, celebration ideas and lesson plans, and materials to use in promoting the Week and inclusive practices in your community. Posters, awareness bracelets, stickers, and pencils with the message, “Great things happen in inclusive schools,” are available for purchase. Order today!
