The Shadow Project

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.
