The Director of OSD requested that FOSD pay for OSD to become a sponsor of the National Deaf Education Conference, which is online this year. Several OSD teachers attend and get new ideas to bring back to the classroom. The Board approved $500 for this request.
FOSD was happy to award $1,032.01 to purchase wrist rests and standing pads for teachers. FOSD Board members delivered these supplies to teachers at their homes. The teachers were glad to have the support during this pandemic, when they are having to shift all of their teaching online.
Kris Hurst’s request for up to $406.30 in funding for up to 34 students to take a day trip to the Oregon Coast Aquarium was approved. The trip is a reward for responsible behavior during the yearlong PBIS program.
