Arlington School to Accept $10,000 Grant
The grant was awarded to the county's Stratford Program.
Arlington Public School’s Stratford Program will receive a $10,000 grant that will go toward purchasing state-of-the-art equipment.
“We are thankful and excited to have received this grant,” said Stratford Principal Karen Gerry stated in a news release from the school system. “Our students have sensory issues and having this technology will help us improve those issues as well and to communicate lessons in an effective way.”
The Warren G. Stambaugh Memorial Foundation has awarded the grant to the Stratford Program. The Stratford Program provides education for students ages 10 to 22 with special needs who require extensive assistance.
The grant money for the Stratford Program will go toward a Promethean ActivTable, which has a 46-inch HD display and works like a tablet P.C. that up to six students can use at once. The school will also purchase additional items that will “improve student’s sensory integration.”
The school will formally accept the grant at an award ceremony and reception on Thursday in Arlington at the John Marshall Bank. The foundation is awarding a total of over $67,500 in grants to seven organizations, including the Arlington-based National Rehabilitation and Rediscovery Foundation.
The foundation supports public and private that provide assistance to persons with disabilities.
