Owensboro Day TreatmentOWENSBORO, Ky. (4/11/19) — Owensboro Day Treatment has been awarded a $9,794 Kentucky Educational Collaborative for State Agency Children grant to fund staff training that will allow the school to provide Project Lead The Way learning opportunities for students.
 
ODT had submitted a proposal for State Agency Children’s Funds Special Allocation for Meeting Student Achievement Needs in A-6 KECSAC Programs and was recently that their proposal to address student achievement had been approved for full funding.
 
Jeremy Camron, who serves as head teacher at Owensboro Day Treatment, said the money will pay for training, new computers, an advanced 3-D printer, an iPad for students to create presentations using a green screen, and supplies for the program. ODT teacher Amanda Miller will attend PLTW training this summer as the school prepares to offer the innovative learning experiences for students next year.
 
“This program will be a regular class for all students who attend Owensboro Day Treatment,” Camron said. “It’s a hands-on program that allows students to design and model solutions to real-world problems.”
 
Camron said the program funded by KECSAC fits perfectly with the school’s mission of providing meaningful learning experiences that strengthen students’ transitions into college and the workplace. “We are excited about this hands-on learning opportunity for our students and hope it ‘Inspires Hope for the Future’ by giving them confidence to part of other Project Lead The Way and technical programs after they transition from Owensboro Day Treatment,” he said.

Owensboro Day Treatment operates under the authority of the Kentucky Educational Collaborative for State Agency Children, a statewide organization that works with state agencies, school districts and local programs to ensure that state agency children receive a quality education comparable to all Kentucky students. “State agency children” are those in the custody or supervision of the Commonwealth and are being served in programs funded and/or operated by the Department of Juvenile Justice, the Department for Community Based Services or the Department for Behavioral Health, Development and Intellectual Disabilities.
