Nominations Being Accepted for Third-Annual VanderHart, Crawford, & Perry Inclusion Awards
The Special Education Advisory Council (SEAC) is accepting nominations for the VanderHart, Crawford,

aided in the furtherance of an inclusive environment in Auburn-Washburn.
Examples of a person promoting an inclusive environment may include the staff member who actively
promotes and supports inclusion in her classroom or program, a student who establishes a friendship
with a peer and ensures they are included, or a bus driver who arranges the seating chart to ensure
that all children have an opportunity to interact appropriately on the bus.
This award was first presented by SEAC during the 2010-2011 school year in recognition of the students
at Washburn Rural High School who started the Circle of Friends Program. If you know anyone who meets
this criterion, we encourage nominations for any member of the school-wide community. By March 12, 2015,
please submit your nomination attention to Carol Ondracek, at Farley Elementary School, fax (785-408-8325)
