Valley High Team Selected to Participate in Project ENABLE

The three-member team is one of 10 in the nation that will travel to New York to learn how to better design and implement libraries and information programs.

A team from Valley High received a grant from the Laura Bush Foundation that will allow them to participate in Project ENABLE (Expanding Nondiscriminatory Access by Librarians Everywhere).

The Valley team is made up of Jolanta Feliciano, librarian and team leader; Lynne Thompson, special education teacher; and Arlene Anglada, teacher. The three will travel to Syracuse University this summer to participate in the Project ENABLE.

Project ENABLE has focused on face-to-face and online training for school librarians to help them better design and implement their library and information programs and services for students with disabilities. The grant is founded by the Laura Bush Foundation with cooperation of the Syracuse University, NY. School librarians, teachers, and special education teachers were encouraged to apply for this grant to improve the library and information services to students with disabilities in their schools and districts. Out of all applications submitted for this year's intensive workshops, 10 teams were selected nationwide.
