New therapy dogs greet students
California Area School District | Posted onIt’s all “paws on deck” as we prepare for the new school year to start!
Through grant funding, the faculty/staff of the California Area School District are helping to make a more “pawsitive” culture and climate for our kids. Through a partnership with Off Leash K-9 Training and Therapy Dogs United, there will be nearly a dozen resident therapy dogs in our district this upcoming year.
Research shows that animal assisted interventions, education and therapy are beneficial to student success, builds confidence, increases literacy skills and creates a positive climate/culture.
