FM Amplification System
With an eye toward enhancing listening and attention, MEF funded a pilot for an FM amplification system in a 3rd grade classroom at Kings Road School last spring. Based on the enormously positive experience of the teachers and students, the district plans to equip every elementary classroom across the district within three years. With Federal grant money in hand, the schools turned to the MEF to help jumpstart the effort. This winter 2011/12, 19 FM systems, five funded by MEF, were installed in all three elementary schools. According to Director of Special Services Nancy Novack, research has shown that sound distribution systems improve learning and literacy outcomes in all classrooms.
