Ingham Impact Podcast Featuring
Ingham ISD's Occupational Therapists (OTs) serve as a part of the Itinerant Services team. OTs identify barriers to a student's participation in school activities and provides strategies, plans and supports students need to be successful. OTs collaborate with other service providers to ensure they are all working toward the same goal of achieving cognitive and social independence.
On October 3, Ingham ISD officially opened the William & Claire Dart Advanced Manufacturing Center at the
Wilson Talent Center with a
press conference and ribbon cutting ceremony. This new center culminates a nearly two-year project made possible by a $700,000 matching grant from the Dart Foundation in which Ingham ISD matched the dollars to renovate classroom and lab spaces for three of Wilson Talent Center's programs. Thank you to the Dart Foundation for your continued support of educational outcomes in our region!
