Specialized Equipment Gives Lander’s Adaptive PE Classes a Leg Up

  • Local Champion: Fremont County School District #1
  • Date Funded: November 28, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $17,916

There are 1.5 certified adaptive PE teachers in Fremont County School District #1. One works at the high school and the other works half-time serving all students K-8 who need adaptive PE. While the school district realizes the importance of physical movement and education for students with disabilities, it is  limited in its ability to implement some improvements because the schools currently do not have the specialized equipment they need to provide a creative and well-rounded physical education to these students. One of the district’s PE teachers brought a potential solution to LOR: There is space in the Pathfinder High School building to store specialized equipment. If he had the equipment, the teacher would be able to transport what is needed for each student/group of students each day, and as the program grows he could set up an adaptive PE Lab where bigger items are set up and students could come to Pathfinder for class. LOR’s funding will help support the purchase of the equipment—specialized bikes, agility training, soccer gear, hurdles, and more—the students need.
