Building Support for Inclusion in Catholic Schools Join Us for this Fundraising Luncheon to Show Your Support Oregon Inclusive Catholic Education (I.C.E.) is a 501c(3) non-profit organization which promotes the inclusion of students with learning disabilities in their parish schools. We believe that every child has the right to a Catholic education, to attend the same school as their siblings and neighbors, and to learn alongside their typically-developing peers. Oregon I.C.E. works with educators, parents, and the Catholic Archdiocese of Portland to make this a reality. Since the inception of Oregon I.C.E., nearly five years ago, we have held three inclusion seminars. This is now an annual event. Each seminar has included speakers who are nationally recognized experts in the field of inclusion in Catholic education. Some of our other noteworthy accomplishments: Provided funding to send educators from parish schools to the All-Born-In Conference on inclusive education Attended the Vatican Conference on Catechesis andPersons with Disabilities Attendedthree National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) conferences Represented Oregon I.C.E. at the United Nations This year we are providing funding to send ten (10) educators from the Archdiocese of Portland to the All-Born-In conference this May.
