The ARISE Coalition and Parents for Inclusive Education are seeking students with physical disabilities in 7th through 11th grades to join a Student Advisory Panel on Accessibility in NYC Public Schools. We are reaching out to students with physical disabilities interested in working with us to identify specific concerns and make recommendations with regard to improving access and school culture for students with a range of physical disabilities. Through this work, students will have the opportunity to further their knowledge about how city government works, meet with key city officials and staff, and potentially speak with press about the panel's concerns and recommendations.
Students interested in joining the panel should complete the application by February 28, 2018. If selected, students will be asked to commit to monthly meetings during the school year through June 2019.
