The Collaborative Effort to work with the community and the Vandalia School District to benefit students and enhance the community has a name and is making progress, as they work to get programs ready for the start of the 2018-19 school year. The group met on Thursday to go over their projects they are working on for this upcoming school year. Vandalia Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jennifer Garrison talks about the name of the program, along with how they are coming along on their initiatives.
And, Dr. Garrison says an after-school program with the Family YMCA of Fayette County is also part of the project.
As Dr. Garrison says Vandalia ONE is the official name, with ONE standing for Own It, Name It, Embrace It. She is also encouraging folks to use the #VandalPride on social media to highlight different school and area accomplishments.
