Local districts get part of $20K grant pie
Banks, Hillsboro to use funds for special ed programs
Banks and Hillsboro school districts were among the recipients of $20,821 in grants from the Northwest Regional Education Service District Foundation earlier this month.
The foundation granted Banks School District $1,178 to purchase iPads for data-tracking and video modeling for students with autism and other developmental disabilities in the special education classroom at Banks Elementary School.
In Hillsboro, a $200 grant will replace a basketball hoop at the P.A.C.E. program at Glencoe High School. P.A.C.E. serves students with disabilities including cognitive, speech communication, orthopedic, psychological and behavioral issues.
All 18 grant-funded programs in Washington, Columbia, Clatsop and Tillamook counties are for projects in special education or at-risk student populations.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
