Inclusive Schools Week
October 25, 5PM

The SFUSD Inclusive Schools Week starts on December 5th this year. Inclusive Schools Week celebrates the progress that our schools have made in providing a supportive

and quality education to an increasingly diverse student population. This includes students who are marginalized due to disability, gender, socio-economic status, cultural

heritage, language preference and other factors. We are forming a committee of parent volunteers that can help set up and run ability awareness stations one day that week

as well as help organize and orchestrate a school wide art project. The first meeting will be Tuesday 10/25 at 5pm in the library. Please come and share your ideas! If you cannot make the meeting, but are interested in volunteering, please email Jennifer Horner
