School system receives $30,000 gifted grant

From Staff Reports
The Thomasville City Schools District recently received a $30,000 Fiscal Year 2021 Gifted and Talented Student Program Grant to fund new or continuing programs offering advanced and specialized educational services to gifted and talented students.
The grant came from the State of Alabama Department of Education Special Education Services Division of Instruction.
“The grant will be used for a Virtual Reality Lab and a 3-D printer for our Gifted and Talented Program, said Nicole Knight, gifted teacher. “Computers that produce holographic 3-D images will be purchased. Students will be able to manipulate these images as if they were real.
“For example, students will be able to complete virtual reality labs where they complete dissections, mix chemical or work on machinery. This will provide amazing experiences for our students without leaving the safety of the classroom.”
