Support for Community School Program Continues to Grow Lancaster County Community Foundation Commits $100,000
10/13/14, Lancaster, PA: Following an earlier announcement about the launch of a Community School focused on refugee children and their families, another local agency announces their support with a $100,000 contribution. The Lancaster County Community Foundation announced on October 8th, that it would grant $100,000 in funds to IU13 for the development of a Community School Coordinator and Refugee Coalition Facilitator. These positions are key to the advancement of the Refugee Community School and will be managed by the IU13 Adult Education Program. The Refugee Community School will be hosted at the Reynolds Middle School in Lancaster City and open in spring 2015.
 
IU13 is partnering with the School District of Lancaster, SouthEast Lancaster Health Services, and the Lancaster County Refugee Coalition, as well as several other community agencies, to develop a Community School Program for refugee children and their families. In August, the Lancaster Rotary Club announced that it would support the program through $100,000 of funding.
 
“There is a lot of support in the community for this program,” stated Tim Shenk, Program Director of Adult Education for Lancaster-Lebanon IU13. “I’m out meeting with partnering agencies and community members about the program and it’s empowering to hear their support. There is a real need for a Community School focused on refugees in Lancaster city, and we feel fortunate to be part of the conversation…and to have an opportunity to make a difference.”
 
Each year, thousands of refugees arrive in the United States through the U.S. Refugee Admissions program, seeking the opportunity to rebuild their lives in a new country. Refugees are an extremely vulnerable group of people, being driven from their home countries by persecution and armed conflict. This program will help children and their families to access critical support services to help them succeed in their new country.
 
The Community School model provides a safe space for refugee families moving into Lancaster. It is a source of empowerment for families, offering programs such as: Adult Cultural Orientation, Adult English as a Second Language (ESL) and General Education Development (GED) classes, financial literacy, home/landlord rights and responsibilities, civic engagement and citizenship classes, health and mental health education, and job training. The services will not be duplicated but rather complement resettlement efforts and next step opportunities. The Community School will provide a hub for networks, information, resources in order to bringing together refugee families, local providers, and community members. 
 
Church World Service (CWS) and Lutheran Refugee Services (LRS), which serve as “resettlement agencies” in Lancaster, serve more than 500 individuals a year. When refugees arrive in Lancaster County, the resettling agencies provide assistance for three months. The Refugee Community School will serve as an extension of these services for families.
 
The Community School Project was announced earlier this year. The Lancaster County Rotary Club and Lancaster County Community Foundation have been instrumental in supporting the program financially. It is anticipated that the Community School will open in spring of 2015.
 
For more information about the program, please contact Tim Shenk at 717-606-1793.

IU13 Completes Statewide Training for PVAAS
August 2014: The PVAAS Statewide Team for PDE (Dr. Kristen Lewald, Jennifer Kurtz, Jennifer Ross, Joan Perekupka, and Brian Truesdale – from IU13 Instructional Services) just completed a seven-week statewide implementation of the PVAAS Roster Verification. This was a process for teachers and administrators to make sure accurate data is used to yield PVAAS Teacher Specific Reporting as part of Pennsylvania’s new Educator Effectiveness System. This included 43,000+ teachers from districts/schools statewide. The PVAAS Statewide Team developed a wealth of resources to support LEAs statewide in implementing the PVAAS Roster Verification process. This included a Virtual Learning Module for districts/schools which was viewed statewide over 30,000 times. In this seven-week window, the PVAAS Statewide Team for PDE sent and received over 25,000 emails to/from LEAs as they needed support to verify the linkages between teachers and students. While this was a new process for districts/schools, the team received many emails applauding the timely, effective, and extensive supports provided statewide to Pennsylvania’s districts/schools.
 
Since launching in 2002, IU13 has administered the statewide implementation and rollout of PVAAS on behalf of the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE). Staff from IU13 serve as the PDE PVAAS Statewide Core Team.
Student Garden Project Awarded for Modeling Health and Wellness
Columbia Garden - classroomLancaster, PA: A partnership between enthusiastic teachers, inspired students, and a generous local business has been awarded for being a model of health and wellness. It began as an idea with Michelle Westerman, Columbia School District Cafeteria Manager, who wanted to build a school garden. She reached out to other teachers regarding the idea and sought funding to make the dream affordable.
 
Alcoa, a local business in Lancaster County, awarded the project a $1,500 grant to buy materials, as well as a volunteer work crew, which spent several hours with the students designing and building the garden.
 
Columbia Garden - students in gardenWesterman also reached out to several teachers for support. Mr. Delallo, who teaches Wood Technology, helped students design and build the raised wood boxes, bean trellises, and garden markers. Students from Mr. Shoff’s science classroom researched sun exposure and selected the best area for the gardens to be located. The students also created blue prints to use for assigning plants to each box. Columbia SD science teacher, Mrs. Frey, helped her students design and install an irrigation system. And finally, the plants were purchased and started by Mrs. Cherry’s IU13 Learning Support classroom, and later transplanted into the garden.
 
Over the summer months, Mr. Moser (IU13 Job Trainer) and Ms. Sliger (Food and Consumer Science teacher) will be taking students to the school to maintain the gardens and harvest foods for use by the cafeteria staff in the following school year. It is anticipated that this project will be continued in the coming school year.
 
Columbia Garden - student in gardenThis hard work and collaboration across multiple classrooms and grade levels at Columbia School District, was recognized by Lighten Up Lancaster County and recently awarded the 2014 Apple Award. Lighten Up Lancaster County (LULC), in partnership with Lancaster General Health, recently announced the winners of the 2014 Apple Awards, recognizing schools for their commitment to engaging students and faculty in promoting healthy lifestyle choices.
 
Evidence shows that by helping children eat healthy and be physically active early in life, the risk for becoming obese is significantly decreased. Such actions also provide children with the knowledge and skills for an overall healthier lifestyle.
 
Local winners include: • Columbia Jr./Sr. High School: 1st Place- Nutrition • Ephrata Middle School: 1st Place- Physical Activity • Cocalico School District (Food Services): 1st Place- Innovation Sue Lackmann from Lancaster General Health presented the awards to each school during the first week in June.

IU13 Announces Annie Sullivan Award Winner

Lancaster, PA: Heidi Gardner of Lititz, PA, was recently named the 2014 Annie Sullivan Award Winner by Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13 (IU13). The award recognizes a professional staff member who exemplifies caring involvement of students with disabilities, and goes beyond the duties of the classroom in helping others in the school and community to understand and accept people with disabilities.  It is named after Helen Keller’s teacher and is presented to a professional in special education who has been nominated by his/her peers.  

 

Heidi is an IU13 teacher of special education, who teaches a Warwick High School Multiple Disabilities Support Classroom. 

As part of the nomination process staff, students, and parents of students offered testimonials. Here are some excerpts from their testimonials, which exemplify the dedication Heidi has for her work and students.

 

“(I am) continually amazed at her natural ability to work with each student in such a caring and compassionate manner, every day.” (Coworker)

 

“Heidi is caring, fair, and respectful, and has a work ethic that doesn’t quit. She holds high expectations for herself, her staff, and her students.”  (Coworker)

 

“I don’t take this award lightly…Heidi Gardner is one of those rare people who I would even consider nominating.” (Coworker)

 

“Over the years that I have known Heidi, she has served as a quality educator, a leader among her peers, and most importantly, a strong advocate for her students.” (School District Administrator)

 

“Getting the students out into the community, making them comfortable in their surrounding, and encouraging acceptance is of the utmost important to her.” (Coworker)

 

“Heidi was my son’s teacher…and has always been a strength to me as I coped with his disabilities.  Heidi is always so upbeat and her willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty is truly her greatest asset.”  (Parent of student)

 

IU13 presents one staff member with the Annie Sullivan Award each year, as do most intermediate units across the Commonwealth.  Heidi was officially recognized by the IU13 Board of Directors at the May Board Meeting (5/14/14).

Get Ready for the Holiday Student Bazaars!
Promoting the occupation of handicrafts.

It’s time to start holiday shopping. This Thursday and Friday IU 13 is sponsoring two Holiday Student Bazaars. Several students from IU 13 “School-to-Work” programs and school district classes will come together to showcase and sell their handmade products, promoting the occupation of handicrafts to teach students basic work skills, marketing, advertising, and selling. These events are rewarding for everyone!

Lebanon County Bazaar (New Venue)

Friday, December 6th

9am-1pm

Lebanon County Area Agency on Aging

Event Background:

Each year IU 13 sponsors student bazaars in Lancaster and Lebanon counties, which provides students with an opportunity to showcase and sell their handmade products, promoting the occupation of handicrafts to teach students basic work skills, marketing, advertising, and selling.

 

The students are part of a district-operated class or the IU 13-operated “School-to-Work” program, which provides community-based training in real work settings. The IU 13 program is available for high school students with disabilities and is designed to help students learn self-determination, functional academics, and to establish linkages to adult service agencies. The bazaars are incorporated into the classroom curriculum and play an invaluable role in teaching skill acquisition. It allows teachers to observe students in an integrated setting and determine if skills taught in the classroom have been mastered. For example – product development and marketing, social interaction skills, and the practical skills of counting money, providing change, and talking to customers.

 

The Student Bazaars are featured events for students. Last year, over 300 students participated in the events, filling the rooms smiling faces and energy! The students can’t wait to tell you about ‘their craft’ and what they learned while making it. It is an amazing experience for the students, as well as the attendees.
