Yellowstone Academy (YA) is the fully accredited K-12 school located right on YBGR’s campus. All children who attend school at YA are special needs students, many of whom also have sensory issues.
YA’s current communication system has a bell and alarm that are quite loud and can be extremely disruptive to these children with sensory issues. As a result, YA is seeking funds for a new communication system that would be quieter and much less disruptive.
The proposed new system would provide:
- quieter emergency notifications,
- silent staff notifications,
- increase coverage in all school areas,
- improve efficiency of kids transferring to classes, and
- decrease inappropriate interactions.
These benefits would greatly reduce anxiety for our school children and increase their capacity to learn and grow in a safer, calmer environment.
The total cost of the fully integrated school-wide communication system is $51,000 and we’re just $7,000 short of our goal!
With your help, we can better communicate with Yellowstone Academy students. Thank you!
