Inclusion Policy of 9/14/15

Today, the U.S. Departments of Education and Health and Human Services released a policy statement highlighting the importance of making sure that all young children with disabilities have access to inclusive high-quality early childhood programs. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced the new policy statement in Kansas City, Missouri, during the first stop of his back-to-school bus tour.

The policy statement sets a vision for States, local educational agencies, schools, and public and private early childhood programs to strengthen and increase the number of inclusive high-quality early childhood programs nationwide. As the country continues to move forward on the critical task of expanding access to high-quality early childhood programs for all young children, it is imperative that children with disabilities be included in these efforts.

Blogging is part of a "learning plan" that I have. This blog is meant for Early Childhood Special Education staff and their collaborating partners in CESA 9. I will try to share at least weekly specific information on an upcoming event, updates from CESA and the state as well as pieces of potential  interest from the world of Early Childhood.  I am looking forward to feedback as I journey through blogging since we know that feedback is essential to learning. I will try to preface each blog with a searchable word that may assist you as you visit the blog over time. (My understanding is that the search feature it is not always reliable.)
