Learn Unified: Whole School Engagement

There are 3 components of a Special Olympics Unified Champion School. An example of one is Whole School Engagement. This is when activities promote inclusion and reach the entire school population. Examples of these activities are; Spread the Word, Fans in the Stands, and Polar Plunges.

#UnifiedGeneration Review:

“This video displays how whole-school engagement works. Special Olympics promotes inclusion of students with intellectual disabilities in school. Through activities like the Spread the Word campaign and inclusive pep rallies,  everyone is engaged and no one is left out. My favorite part of the video was seeing everyone participate in a polar plunge. You could see how much fun everyone was having. It was a very touching.” — Tajha Ilerant, 2018 U.S. Youth Ambassador (Florida)
