Tune-in to NECN Tuesday Night December 9th at 9PM

Tomorrow night, Tuesday December 9th during the 9:00-10:00PM hour, New England Cable News (NECN) will air its Making the Grade segment on
the Inclusive Concurrent Enrollment (ICE) program for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities attending college.

 
The segment focuses on Roxbury Community College ICE student Max Pimentel and his experience fighting for educational opportunity since he was a child and the success he has achieved.

In the segment myself and Glenn Gabbard, ICE Coordinator at the Executive Office of Education, discuss the importance of the program and how families with children with disabilities can take advantage of the higher education opportunities available to them.

The ICE program allows students ages 18 to 22 who have significant disabilities and do not pass MCAS, to enroll in college classes alongside their non-disabled peers and is currently available at 10 of Massachusetts’ 29 public colleges and universities.

Help spread the word by encouraging families you know to watch Making the Grade on NECN, Comcast channel 6, Tuesday night at 9PM.
