Marietta College receives Parents as Partners grant from ODE

Bill Bauer headshotMarietta College’s Dr. Bill Bauer, McCoy Professor of Education, believes educators sometimes forget the importance of parents in the teaching process and he would like to include them more in the educating of children with disabilities.

The Ohio Department of Education Office of Exceptional Children agrees with Bauer and recently approved the Parents as Partners grant, which is designed to help engage parents of children with disabilities as partners in a co-teaching model in three education courses. The grant provides Marietta College with $23,979 in funding to support the program over the next two years.
