There are many things that make The Bay School a unique program for individuals with autism and developmental disabilities, but one area that is particularly important to us is the quality of training we provide to our staff.
Thank you to everyone near and far who helped make magic happen at The Bay School! With the overwhelming generosity of our community, we exceeded our Playground Project fundraising goal and raised over $35,000 through our Crowdrise campaign.
In March 2017, The Bay School welcomed Spring View Middle School and Rocklin High School Bands to perform live jazz music for our students and staff on our new playground! One of our students joined in by playing the bongos for a couple songs, while other students danced and cheered for all the musicians. Many of the band members spent time with our students in between sets, playing soccer and dancing—it was truly a special event for everyone!
In May 2017, The Bay School developed a new position, Clinical Coordinator, designed to provide additional educational and behavioral support to our students. We are proud to announce that Stephanie (Steph) Iwanciow will be stepping into this role. Steph has been part of our team for over 12 years, serving the role of Instructor, Senior Instructor, and most recently Special Education Teacher. Steph holds her Masters Degree in Education and is a Board Certified Behavior Analysist (BCBA).
