National Inclusive Schools Week is Dec. 2-6

Throughout the week, Kent School District is featuring some of the ways the KSD community fosters an inclusive learning environment for all students.

The District is sharing stories from school staff throughout the week highlighting exceptional individuals who go above and beyond to promote inclusive opportunities for all students.

KSD is also distributing a book to each of its elementary schools to help instill an awareness and acceptance of students with disabilities. The book, The Kindergarten Adventures of Amazing Grace, was written by a Sammamish High School student, Briana Pacelli, as part of her senior project and illustrated by her brother, Trevor Pacelli, who has autism.

This year, KSD created a video in celebration of this special week that highlights some of the individuals who work hard each and every day to support inclusive education in schools. View the video here.
