The outbreak of COVID-19 launched the United States into a public health crisis, impacting families, schools and communities in unprecedented ways. Yet, we know parents and schools across the country are working hard to uphold the civil rights of students with disabilities and meet their needs during this scary time. We want to highlight good ideas, creative thinking, and concrete examples of how families, schools, and communities are working together to serve students with disabilities as best they can.
Ultimately, we want to share positive stories with schools, administrations, and state policy makers so that we can work together to provide special education to students with disabilities as best we can during this time. This is not the time to waive critical civil rights protections for students with disabilities and their families! We need to work together so all kids continue to learn.
