Akron Family Starts Outdoor Classroom for Students with Disabilities
Akron Public Schools offered Lyra Christensen, a student with Down Syndrome, specialized therapy, support in the classroom and a social network.
Lyra, 8, was on-track to match her peers when the pandemic hit, parents Max Thomas and Holly Christensen said. But when APS closed in the spring, she fell behind. The district is still in remote learning, as the board of education looks to pinpoint a time for return as coronavirus cases in the state spike again.
