Special education residencies in greenville county high schools
CDC receives annual funding from the Barbara Stone Foundation to work alongside special education high schoolers in the Greenville County Public Schools. 4 Schools are chosen both in the Fall and Spring semesters to participate in 5 weeks of lessons that finishes with a large performance of all involved schools. It's a special opportunity for our students and having the chance to perform on stage is an exciting experience for everyone involved.
