Independent Stave donates $30K to R-3 for dyslexia program

Independent Stave

The Independent Stave Company of Lebanon has continued its efforts to create a training program for teachers of students with dyslexia in the Lebanon R-3 elementary schools.

In 2016 it donated $30,000 for the research phase of the program that sent teachers to training programs focused on literacy and dyslexia.

The donation also went toward the creation of a tiered intervention process to support dyslexic students.

Now the family-owned business is making another $30,000  donation that will help one elementary teacher from each elementary school get certified as dyslexic specialists.

“The history of our company is rooted in the Ozarks, and we are very motivated to help our local community, which includes investing in the future generations. This program is an excellent example of an important way we can support students and minimize the barriers to their individual success. We commend the Lebanon Public Schools and the many teachers who work hard every day to make this possible,” said Brad Boswell, chief executive officer of Independent Stave Company.
