Inclusion in Schools - An easy feat with all of these feet

January 10, 2020 -  On your mark, get set, GO! Starting in late February, hundreds of school-age athletes will participate in Little Feet Meets, Meet in the Middle events and Big Feet Meets across Virginia. These Unified Strategy for Schools® events are a way for schools to engage students with and without intellectual disabilities during a training season and culminating “Feet Meet.” Students without disabilities can practice and compete with their team, as well as act as meet facilitators and fans.

And all of these “feet” are helping us make big strides in building more inclusive school communities.
