INCLUDEnyc Addresses Educational Equity & Coronavirus in Policy Brief

New York, NY, April 8, 2020—INCLUDEnyc collaborated on a policy brief providing recommendations for how school districts need to create educational equity for students with disabilities during COVID-19. 

The Education Trust-New York, EPIC-Every Person Influences Children, the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD), and INCLUDEnyc partnered on creating this brief, “Educational Equity and Coronavirus: Students with Disabilities.” Read the full policy brief. 

“Students with disabilities already experience inequity in our schools, which are amplified during coronavirus-related school closures. In this policy brief, we provide recommendations for school districts to create instructional equity and support for students with disabilities,” said Barbara A. Glassman, Executive Director of INCLUDEnyc.

“As we continue to see how special education, related services, and accommodations are remotely delivered during this time, INCLUDEnyc is providing ongoing direct assistance to families, online workshops and parent support groups, new resources, and updated news, including official guidance from government agencies.”
