“Goodrich High School will implement a Peer-to-Peer support program in 2018-2019. This program involves general education peers modeling typical academic and social behavior throughout the school day for students with disabilities. This peer support promotes independence and socialization skills and increases a sense of belonging within natural environments such as classrooms, the cafeteria and assemblies and at dances and sporting events. This grant will provide the necessary funding to transition these new skills into authentic teenage environments. It will also enable our school to motivate and celebrate our peer mentors for being leaders in our school and community.”
