Digitability Launches a Pilot in the #1 School District in Kansas
About the Digitability Pilot Launch Event at Blue Valley North
It all started with a parent ... The pilot launch of Digitability’s Work-Ready Skills Training Program at Blue Valley North all started with a parent of a student with neurodiverse needs.
Blue Valley Unified School District is the #1 rated school district in Kansas, and after our demo with the team at Blue Valley North we decided to quickly launch a pilot of Digitability.
Digitability also met with corporate stakeholders in nearby Kansas City, like Sprint and Hallmark. One of the purposes of our meeting was to learn more about Sprint and Hallmark’s neurodiversity efforts and their specific workforce needs. These early conversations focused on the positive impact of employing people with neurodiverse.
