The Special Olympics Schools Partnership Program (SPP) is a unique education program offered in grades Pre K through Transition (ages 18-22). We partner with schools, districts, county office of education and other agencies to offer Unified Champion School programs, which combine students with and without disabilities in sports training, competition, leagues, and inclusive activities at their schools throughout the school year. The program unifies students with and without disabilities through sports and whole school engagement. These activities educate students and provide them with the skills necessary to develop sustainable school communities that promote inclusion, acceptance and respect for all students.
