“Inclusive Schools Week is an annual event sponsored by the Inclusive Schools Network (ISN) and Stetson & Associates, Inc., which is held each year during the first full week in December. Since its inception in 2001, Inclusive Schools Week has celebrated the progress that schools have made in providing a supportive and quality education to an increasingly diverse student population, including students who are marginalized due to disability, gender, socio-economic status, cultural heritage, language preference, and other factors. The Week also provides an important opportunity for educators, students and parents to discuss what else needs to be done in order to ensure that their schools continue to improve their ability to successfully educate all children.
Inclusive Book Recommendations
SEPTA has, over time, compiled some book recommendations. This is NOT an exhaustive list by any means! We will update in the future as time allows, but we always recommend touching base with your school or public librarian if you’re looking for more inclusive titles!
DISCLAIMER: Inclusion in these inclusive book lists does not imply Fairfax County SEPTA endorsement of any publisher, product, program or technique.
