Save Giant Steps School
Giant Steps School - AIND recently announced they will be permanently closing due to the hardship of meeting Covid-19 regulations. The parents, staff, and community were shocked and devastated to learn they would be losing such a tremendous support system as well as a valuable community resource. Giant Steps has educated children with severe and profound disabilities for the last twenty seven years.
The outpour from the community has been endless. The community pleads with the Board to reconsider and keep Giant Steps open. It is necessary to allow time to consult with Giant Steps own staff, parents, experts, educators and legislators to develop a plan to keep Giant Steps School open!
For many children at Giant Steps, there is no other school that can provide a safe and appropriate education, due to the complexity of their disability and support needs. This was the very principle that Giant Steps was founded on. We plead that the Board allow this legacy to continue. There is no other therapeutic, educational setting like Giant Steps!
We support Giant Steps School. Save Giant Steps School and protect the future of our students!
