Accessibility at the DOE

Celebrate #ADA30!

Father and SonOn July 26,1990 the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law. Commonly known as the ADA, this law has been instrumental in creating more accessibility in employment, education, as well as public and digital spaces. This year marks 30 years of the ADA, and all the progress that has been made for people with disabilities.

Chancellor Carranza joins Mayor Bill de Blasio, and Victor Calise, Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office for Persons with Disabilities, in celebrating inclusion, equity and excellence for all New Yorkers.

Learn about the work the DOE does to ensure equal access to education, buildings and digital content, and join us in celebrating 30 years of inclusion.
