Fourth Grader Petitions School District For Greater Accessibility
[Source: Los Angeles Times]
Rory Siwula is 9 years old and speaks quickly, as if she were in a rush to get all the words out.
She’s confident and happy to answer questions about herself. She’s entering the fourth grade this fall. She uses a wheelchair. She is in the special education program at Killybrooke Elementary. She thinks of herself as pretty smart and said she knows generally what people think about when they see her.
And she’s tired of hearing “no” from the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, which she and her family allege does not provide enough accessibility to restrooms at her Costa Mesa campus.
