Dr. Keri Bethune Receives Funding for the Consortium of Institutions of Higher Education in Virginia in Severe Disabilities


 

SUMMARY: Dr. Keri Bethune of Education Programs receives funding from GMU to continue the Consortium of Institutions of Higher Education in Virginia in Severe Disabilities.


Dr. Keri Bethune, Assistant Professor for Education Programs, acquired a $63,000 grant from George Mason University to bring the Consortium of Institutions of Higher Education in Virginia in Severe Disabilities to James Madison University. According to the proposal, “the mission of the consortium is to maintain and implement a statewide program to meet the initial and continuing education needs for teachers of students with severe disabilities in the Commonwealth of Virginia.”  The goal is to have more highly qualified teachers of students with severe disabilities meet Virginia’s licensure requirements.

This is Dr. Bethune’s third year working with the Consortium of Institutions of Higher Education in Virginia in Severe Disabilities.  With the approval of her program, Education Programs is now accepting provisionally licensed and pre-service teachers to obtain their teaching licenses with a concentration in Severe Disabilities.

Congratulations to Dr. Bethune and Education Programs for the award!
