What does it feel like to have a disability? The Margaret Mead Elementary School PTSA wanted students to be able to empathize with their peers who face mobility, learning or other challenges. As part of Disability Awareness Month, they set up a Disability Awareness Fair with eight learning stations.
Upon request from a parent or an adult student, home or hospital instruction shall be provided to both handicapped and other students who are unable to attend school for an estimated period of four weeks or more because of physical disability or noncommunicable illness. A written statement from the student's physician verifying that the student will not be able to attend school for an estimated period of four weeks or more shall accompany the request. The statement shall include an explanation of the physician's diagnosis.
