Accessibility at School District 58 Public Schools

In the spring of 2023, the district created an Accessibility Committee for the purpose of exploring accessibility needs across the system, with a goal of developing a long-term plan to address these concerns.

As our next step, the committee is seeking feedback that will allow us to better understand the needs of individuals who may be impacted by a disability that impacts their ability to participate fully and equitably in the opportunities and environments in schools.

We are wanting to consider disability from a broad lens – not just physical access, but individuals who have sensory, cognitive, mental health, or other needs as well.

We have developed an Accessibility Survey in order to gather information from children, families and staff who either have a disability, or support an individual with a disability.
