Washington Center Receives Grant for iPads
Washington Center, Greenville County Schools’ center for intellectually disabled students, is the recipient of a $2,500 grant from The Macy’s Foundation to purchase five iPads with cases. The additional iPads will provide every classroom with a device.
Students at Washington Center receive instruction based on each student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Students use a variety of unique sensory modalities to learn, and teachers provide creative solutions to the multiple disabilities that challenge these students. The iPad project allows students to receive individualized instruction based on their learning needs.
Use of the iPads will be monitored through classroom observations and lesson plan review. Academic results and effectiveness will be measured through IEP mastery documentation and Alternate Assessment scores.
