Open Your Heart recently provided Intermediate District 287 with funding toward necessities for students – toiletries/personal hygiene products, clothing, and footwear – and to provide transportation (cabbing) to and from school until their McKinney-Vento transportation starts.t
Founded in 1967, Intermediate District 287 is a specialized public school district that exclusively serves students who have high needs from across the Twin Cities west metro area – the .5% of students with the most significant and unique education needs. The mission of Intermediate District 287 is to be the premier provider of innovative specialized services to ensure that each member district can meet the unique learning needs of its students.
Intermediate District 287 works with approximately 100 homeless/highly mobile students each school year with many of these students experiencing multiple address changes. Open Your Heart’s support will help remove barriers for homeless and highly mobile identified students, ages 5 to 21 years of age so that they will have the resources to continue to attend school with dignity.
Thank you, Intermediate District 287, for everything you do!
