Special Olympics Fall 2018

The Delano Joint Union High School District's partnership with Special Olympics Southern California-Kern County has brought six years of smiles to the students in our Special Education programs at Cesar E. Chavez High School and Robert F. Kennedy High School. School Games help students learn skills, coordination and collaboration associated with team sports. This year, the 2018-Fall School Games event highlighted the district's first Unified Champion Basketball Game. The Unified Champion Game featured peer athletes with disabilities and without disabilities in a competitive game. Participation in Unified Champion sports and activities is one way our schools help equip students with the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to create and sustain an inclusive school culture.
