New Resource for Advocating for Students with Disabilities: School Board Advocacy Toolkit
The Center for Dignity in Healthcare for People with Disabilities has developed a School Board Advocacy Toolkit to advocate for students with disabilities. Many decisions that impact students are made by local school boards. As has been observed during the COVID-19 pandemic, many of these decisions and their resulting consequences significantly impact students with disabilities. The toolkit provides tips and resources to help advocate to the local school board, including learning about issues, identifying decision makers, knowing the process, and messaging.
