The Playgrounds Bond Advisory Committee understands the importance of accessibility for all children in our play zones. Our members have reviewed and studied ADA playground guidelines as well as a current safety analysis of our play equipment and spaces.
- Our current work has consisted of exploring exemplars of 21st century play areas to begin to expand and shape our vision for play zones.
- In order to establish a clear sense of the current accessibility and condition of school playgrounds across the district, the committee has developed a detailed checklist which each member will apply to current play areas. This first hand data is important in building a strong sense of the unique needs and spaces at each of our schools.
- Every AAPS elementary school playground will be reviewed for accessibility, safety, aesthetics and possibilities over the course of the next month.
