NATIONAL CENTER FOR LEANING DISABILITIES (NCLD) ROZELLE FOUNDERS AWARD
In 2016, Currey Ingram Academy received the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) Rozelle Founders Award. Created by NCLD’s Board of Directors in 2000, the award, named for NCLD’s founders, Pete and Carrie Rozelle, is presented to outstanding K-12 public and independent schools that provide effective instruction and support to all students and are successful in addressing the educational and social-emotional needs of students with learning and attention issues.
The Rozelle Founders Award is intended to highlight the importance of classroom and school-wide teaching approaches and learning activities that incorporate best evidence-based practices. “Currey Ingram Academy is an outstanding example of how schools can use evidence-based approaches to address students’ learning and attention needs in positive ways,” said James H. Wendorf, executive director of NCLD.
“We are so pleased by this recognition from NCLD,” said Dr. Jeffrey L. Mitchell, head of school for Currey Ingram Academy. “We serve bright students who learn differently, and we could not be more proud of the evidence-based program we use every day. We educate the whole child at Currey Ingram. In addition to our truly individualized program, we offer a host of extracurricular and leadership opportunities to help our students reach their fullest potential. We are honored and humbled to be recognized for our work.”
