Congratulations to Hartland High School on being named a 2020 Special Olympics National Banner Unified Champion School! It is one of only 155 nationwide, and one of only 5 in Michigan!
A Special Olympics Unified Champion School has an inclusive school climate and exudes a sense of collaboration, engagement and respect for all members of the student body and staff. A Unified Champion School receiving national banner recognition is one that has demonstrated commitment to inclusion by meeting 10 national standards of excellence. These standards were developed by a national panel of leaders from Special Olympics and the education community.
Hartland High School’s unified sports team is made up of general education and special education students to promote the importance of inclusion.
