7/29 Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the ADA, Virtually!
The Americans with Disabilities Act officially turns 30 this year. We celebrate the ADA for removing barriers that limit people with different abilities from participating in public life. The ADA also makes it possible for students of all abilities to have access to school. The Access Board is celebrating the anniversary with a virtual public meeting, including a short film. Click here for the virtual meeting details.
The SRTS Calendar discusses the importance of working with your school and school division to get SRTS events on the official calendar so that students, parents, and schools can look forward to and prepare for Safe Routes events. This resource also includes a customizable academic calendar that shows the important upcoming SRTS dates and can be used in the classroom or to help plan for SRTS events.
