Sechrist Receivesrece $5,000 Grant

 
Amanda Sechrist, Exceptional Teacher at Tharrington Primary, has received a $5,000 grant from Ronald McDonald House Charities for her classroom.  Sechrist wrote the grant for Exceptional Minds, an implementation model devised by the special education team to include students in the least restrictive environment. Funding for this model is necessary to provide assistive technology for students with disabilities who have difficulties learning through traditional instructional methods. The classroom will use the money to purchase boardmaker CDs, an FM system, and iPads.
 
Congratulations Mrs. Sechrist!
