Double Helps School Save $20K!

CESA 10, an agency based in Chippewa Falls, provides services for school districts.

Last year it received a Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction grant to improve literacy of students with disabilities in the five school districts that include Bloomer and Lake Holcombe. The districts were selected for the program based on student achievement data.

A trainer was flown in to help, and over a 10-day period the trainer visited the five districts. Webinars were also used. The trainer then flew out of Wisconsin.

The cost: $30,000.

Lindamood-Bell told CESA about the robot program. So the agency switched to “Lucky” for its second year of grants from the DPI.

“This year, with the robot, we’re spending less than $10,000,” Margenau said.
