Partners In Education
STRIDE assists educational organizations by collaborating to provide well-rounded educational experiences for all students. Under Part 200 of the Federal and State regulations of the Education 200.2 Board of Education Responsibilities; “…written policy is required for every school district to ensure that students with disabilities have the opportunity to participate in school district programs, to the maximum extent appropriate to the needs of the student including extra-curricular programs and activities, which are available to all other students enrolled in the public schools of the district…” With this in mind, STRIDE is available to collaborate in developing extra-curricular opportunities that are suited for students with special needs. STRIDE can assist in curricular activities for children with special needs where the school system falls short. In return, in-kind services may be exchanged. STRIDE encourages educational institutions to collaborate. The reciprocal in-kind services of equal value help STRIDE continue its work in the community.
