Silver Sands was selected as a pilot school for Project Core in 2017.  We have worked closely with Project CORE to develop the materials and resources that are available for FREE that help students communicate. 

Parents - Please check out the website and the resources that are available for you at home!  http://www.project-core.com/

The primary goals of Project Core are two-fold:

  • Empower teachers and classroom professionals to deliver access to a Universal Core vocabulary and communication instruction during the naturally occurring academic and daily routines of the school day.
  • Improve the academic achievement of students with significant cognitive disabilities as evidenced by gains in their communication and literacy skills, and ultimately in their end-of-year assessments.
