CAST is urging Congress to protect the rights of students with disabilities as the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold.

In a letter sent to each member of Congress, CAST CEO Linda Gerstle urged Congress to ensure that special education laws which provide for essential supports, services, instruction, and protections are upheld. The letter also asks Congress to make additional investments in schools as they move online and to take steps to ensure equitable Internet access for all households.
