The Gallia-Vinton ESC was awarded the Region 16 EMPOWERING STUDENTS FOR TRANSITION GRANT. The focus of the grant is Career Awareness and Skills for students with disabilities in Gallia, Jackson, and Vinton Counties. The trip is scheduled for Friday, October 5 at The University of Rio Grande. The Transition Camp includes our students with disabilities in the 10th,11th. and 12th Grades. Grant funding is paying for substitute teachers, bus drivers, transportation costs, and meals for the students to attend the Transition Camp. This is a great opportunity for our students.
