Ability Awareness Month
  • As our District prides itself on the richness of our diversity, we elevate our students, families and the intersection of their identities every day.  We also take the opportunity to give special attention to various heritages and identities to raise our collective consciousness about who we are as a community.  For this reason, during the month of October, we celebrate and elevate different ability community members and all they do to make DPSCD strong.

    In 1990, the The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law and began to prohibit discrimination against individuals with different abilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with different abilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else.
