94% of special education teachers in The Shadow Project say it is a valuable resource because it motivates students to show up, stay on task, put forth their best effort and take pride in their work. This past year we partnered with teachers in 28 local schools, making learning more rewarding for 1,200 students.
Last year, 13.2% or more than 74,000 Oregon students received special education services. Most of these students at the elementary level could have qualified for The Shadow Project.

I am proud of myself because I'm doing better in class and staying focused. I used to have a hard time with my attitude but I'm doing better now. I'm 13 and I have done the Shadow Project since I was six. The Shadow Project is wonderful. I hope to be like you guys and help kids out someday. Sincerely, Fredy
