Congratulations to the winners of our SPILLS-Infinitec Grant Competition

Posted by on February 20, 2012 - 0 Comments

Word about SPILLS has been spreading. To meet early demand for our Internet curriculum for students with disabilities, JJ’s List offered a grant through Infinitec. 8 great schools were selected from a competitive field to receive the SPILLS Curriculum and training to implement it with students ranging from middle school to transition age.

 

SPILLS-Infinitec Grantees

 

Our heartiest congratulations goes out to the following winners:

Ladd Grade School – Ladd, IL
Special Education District of Lake County (SEEDOL) – Gages Park, IL
Oak Park and River Forest High School (CITE 1 and 2) – Oak Park, IL
Triton College Transition Program (PAEC) – Maywood, IL
John F. Kennedy School – Spring Valley, IL
SPEED Special Education Joint Agreement #802 – Crete, IL
Peotone High School – Peotone, IL
Taylorville Unit School District #1 – Taylorville, IL

With iPads replacing textbooks at breakneck speed in special ed classrooms, putting the vast world of the Internet right at our childrens’ fingertips, teachers need this tool to effectively teach youth with disabilities how to navigate the on-line world safely and productively.

The Safe and Productive Internet Life & Literacy Skills (SPILLS) Curriculum was designed to help students with disabilities build skills that will not only benefit them in their personal lives, but also open the doors to greater employment opportunities.

 

We’ve been loving the feedback that’s come to us from our grantees so far:

“The curriculum, where it is headed is exactly what our students need… Teaching SPILLS is absolutely a great use of instructional time.”

“We are grateful to have this curriculum. It is targeting an area that we have such a great need for instruction with. This curriculum targets areas that we have not been able to find a cohesive curriculum for in the past.”

For more information on how to get the SPILLS Curriculum for your classroom, please email us at spillscurriculum@jjslist.com. Also, stay tuned for a possible group buy offer starting in May if you’re an Infinitec member!
