Sensory & Resource Room Revitalization

Each Leadership Development Academy of Rock County participant works with a small group of their fellow class members to plan and execute a collaborative project that addresses a community need. These projects and their results are presented each May and serve as the program's capstone experience.

Sensory & Resource Room Revitalization

Team Still Loading RC chose a project that helps the schools and the students within our Rock County communities. They chose three middle schools from Beloit, Janesville, and Milton, with the goal of taking an unused, outdated space and turning it into a space for struggling students to collect themselves emotionally in a calm and mentally stimulating environment, so they may return to their class with a positive and outlook re-energized. The group’s mission statement reads: “To address and adjust unproductive strategies when working with struggling students by creating warm and welcoming areas that all students can use as a safe place to feel comfortable; focusing on restoration to aid in returning students to their regular learning environments.”
