Functional Learning Lab (Spring 2023)
This grant will create a functional skills instruction area at Landis Run. A functional learning lab offers a natural environment for students with developmental or intellectual disabilities to receive modeled instruction connected to skills in academic curriculums. Functional academics help students with significant disabilities learn to respond appropriately in order to perform employment, community, and independent living skills. Students in the life skills support, multiple disabilities support and autistic support programs will be able to practice hands-on skills such as a simple cooking, making a bed, folding laundry, and basic cleaning.
STEM for All Students (Spring 2023)
This project will provide accessible STEM robotics and technology for students with special needs. Students in the autistic support, and life skills support/multiple disabilities support classrooms are working toward IEP goals that involve basic academics (colors, numbers, sight words, shapes, etc.), problem solving, developing independence, social skills, and following directions. Students with special needs will be able to practice these skills through highly engaging, hands-on activities with specially selected, accessible STEM materials.
Sprouting Learners (Spring 2022)
Sprouting Learners provides parent-child workshops and take-home activities designed to prepare students for school and connect families with community partners and resources. Amid the COVID pandemic, the number of young children attending preschool dropped to the lowest level in more than a quarter-century, a decline that threatens decades of improvement in school readiness. As sources of local early childhood programming decrease, this grant will expand Sprouting Learners to include children ages 0-2 and their families, aiming to ensure access to crucial early learning experiences and opportunities for all children in our district.
Note that many grants have outcomes in multiple impact areas.
