This is a great example of how local resources can help shape a school.
In this case, it’s a public school that was built to serve kids with special needs, including a student with Down syndrome.
But in a city where the majority of students are white and students with disabilities aren’t, the district has a chance to get the funding it needs.
This school was one of the first built for the school year, and a small portion of the funding is used to pay for the equipment needed to run the facility.
When the district is able to put the equipment in place, the equipment can be used to teach students with special skills.
And, because it is a public education district, this school is eligible for tax credits and tax rebates, so that the funds can be spent on other local school projects, including special education.
If you’re interested in making sure your school is built with local money, check out the project below.
