TeamChild has long addressed education access and equity for young people experiencing school discipline, enrollment and reengagement barriers, inadequate special education and related services, and discrimination. COVID-19 has intensified these issues for youth of color, youth with disabilities and youth with financial challenges.
In September, attorneys from our Know Your Rights workgroup collaborated with partner organizations to share information from our Education in the wake of COVID-19 Know Your Rights Manual. If you missed the webinars you can view them, and related resources, using the following links:
The next webinar will be presented by The Every Student Counts Alliance, a coalition of parents in the Spokane region seeking to create equitable and inclusive school practices involving education, discipline and safety while amplifying the voices of diverse populations. Attorneys from TeamChild and Northwest Justice Project will present information regarding attendance, grading, special education, discipline, technology, and McKinney-Vento issues during distance learning. Following a short presentation, there will be time for questions and discussions of students’ issues that have arisen with the beginning of the school year. Save the date!
