District Recognized for Equal Employment Opportunities
Due to their collaboration with the Long Island Working Partnership to accommodate an employee with disabilities, the Levittown Public Schools was recently awarded by the Adult Career and Continuing Education Services-Vocational Rehabilitation, for October's National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
The ACCES-VR, which is under the New York State Education Department, traveled across the state to celebrate and recognize local businesses investing in their local human resources and providing the opportunity for skilled workers to contribute to their communities, earn a living wage and have meaningful careers.
The district was among those recognized for demonstrating their commitment and understanding that all individuals deserve to participate and be included in their communities, starting with the opportunity to earn a living wage and be employed.
"This award was accepted with pride as the Levittown School District was the only school district recognized at the ceremony," said Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources Debbie Rifkin. "This is just one example of how we work as a community to meet the needs of all of our students and staff members."
