This was a policy priority on our 2021 Legislative Agenda.
Despite the best efforts of teachers and staff, some students who have disabilities have experienced challenges during distance learning. They will need additional services and supports to address the ground they’ve lost during the pandemic and
return to in-person learning with their peers. Schools and families need the chance to develop plans to address students’
needs arising out of the pandemic, and schools need support to provide those additional services.
Ensuring that students have access to individualized learning and skill rebuilding opportunities, based on their needs and
challenges during the pandemic will help ensure greater long-term success in their education.
