Scranton School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing receives $25,000 grant for new tech
The Scranton School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is celebrating a grant - $25,000 dollars from the NEPA Alliance to invest in new technology.
The new educational technology resources will serve children from 33 school districts and 13 counties. The school's mission is to provide each student with individualized skills to be successful. Scranton School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Director John Konzelman says this funding will allow their students more access to opportunity.
"We're trying to open up our student's minds to what's possible for them down the road. Technology is changing all the time. Our kids are deaf and hard of hearing - we want them to access all the technology they can for future employment, for learning, for their future. And we want them to be exposed to it now. This grant will allow us to do that and we're just so thankful for the support," says Konzelman.
New technology also allows the students to connect with other hard of hearing students in different countries.
