Shentel became one of the first community partners to participate in the inaugural funding efforts for The Instructional Challenge and Innovation Project of Shenandoah County Public Schools.
The program will provide funding for a project related to improving instruction through engaging and emergent teaching and learning approaches. These projects will be utilized to identify successful teaching techniques that can be shared and promoted throughout the Shenandoah County instructional staff.
This project is based upon the idea that the system’s own teachers are its greatest resource, said Ebbie Linaberg, assistant superintendent for curriculum, instruction and assessment. “It’s an effort to go beyond the SOLs (Standards of Learning). It rewards innovative teachers, but it also improves instruction.”
