National research has shown that individuals with disabilities who have opportunities for self-determination and transition planning have better life outcomes.
They are more integrated into their communities, healthier, have more successful careers, are better able to advocate for themselves, and are more productive citizens.
Our alliance of nonpublic and charter schools is dedicated to improving educational opportunities for all DC students with disabilities, and we work toward fulfilling the promise of a quality education for all children through advocacy, special education resources, and strong partnerships.
We must be protecting, serving and preparing our students with disabilities to be productive citizens of our city.
That’s why we’re asking Jennie Niles, our Deputy Mayor for Education, and Superintendent Hanseul Kang and OSSE to fully fund the 2014 Special Education Reforms when they submit the budget requests to Mayor Bowser.
Yet, because of the delay in this legislation, thousands of DC students with IEPs who turned 14 last year and this year and next year , will not be working with their school team, families and community to make goals and plans to support their future education, employment, and independent living needs.
Statistics show that this delay will greatly decrease their ability to succeed in future education and employment – this delay negatively affects our youth, our families and our city.
