Who would have ever guessed face masks and a gallon of hand sanitizer would be on this year's back to school shopping list?
The COVID-19 outbreak brought educational changes we could not have imagined with school closures and remote learning last spring. With no end to the pandemic in sight quite yet, we expect more of the same on campuses again this fall. Students with disabilities are among the most severely affected by suffering both lost services and setbacks in educational progress.
Unfortunately, no one knows when schooling will return to "normal." In the meantime, families and students cope and attempt to make the best of learning opportunities. Disability Rights Texas (DRTx) remains committed to advocating for an appropriate education for students with disabilities during the pandemic.
This year, our back to school newsletter highlights important information and tips to inform and empower you to make the best of this challenging time.
