How School Day Addresses Accessibility and Inclusion

 

School Day wants every student to have a voice and to be equally heard. School Day asks students questions about their wellbeing using emojis suitable for all age groups. School Day highlights what’s going well in schools and classrooms and provides solutions to the most pressing issues. When students feel good, they learn better.

How School Day Addresses Accessibility and Inclusion Challenges

 

We want every student to be noticed and to have the chance to be just who they are. The diversity of students is an endless source of richness that should be supported by enabling students of all abilities, genders, races, ethnicities, religions, and backgrounds to live out their dreams.

School Day Is Here For Everyone

Students

 

Everyone has the right to define themselves, no one has to be reduced to a stereotype. We aim to accelerate the integration of students with disabilities in schools. Our service creates a safe and anonymous space where students can reflect their moods. This helps them open up about their feelings and needs when they feel ready, without pressure from outside.

Families

 

When students answer the same questions, teachers have equal data on everyone in the class. This way they can offer insightful information for families about their children's wellbeing at school and show that they care. The active flow of information between homes and schools makes it easier to communicate about individual needs and preferences.
