CESA 8 is the site for S.M.A.R.T. training this week. S.M.A.R.T. training is a multi-sensory approach to learning designed to develop and enhance the physiological and neurological readiness skills students need to succeed in school. With these readiness skills in place, students have the necessary tools to learn to read, write, and receive information in the classroom. Thank you, Amber Molle, from the Pulaski School District, for facilitating this work!
