Board Approves All-Inclusive Playground Equipment

At their August meeting, the Lincoln County Board of Education approved the installation of an all-inclusive playground at Stanford Elementary. 

This playground will allow children of all abilities and developmental stages to safely play and will create a nurturing environment for all students. The playground will feature a swing set, kitchen play area, nesting tables, ramps, slides, benches, and shades. Stanford Elementary was the chosen location for the new playground because the school is home to two district-wide elementary classrooms that serve children with moderate to severe disabilities who will greatly benefit from the adaptive equipment.  

“With COVID-19 still being a major factor for students, creating more outdoor opportunities is something we felt like would really benefit our students,” said Exceptional Child Director Claudia Godbey. “We are so thrilled to be able to bring something like this to our students. This has been a dream for our district and I can’t imagine how we will feel when we see our students playing and laughing on this new playground.”

This project will be funded by IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) grant money which is restricted for use on students with disabilities. The new playground area is expected to be in place at Stanford Elementary this school year.
