Rotary Club of Castle Rock President, Greg Menke, right, presents a $1,500 check to Donna Massine, coordinator for programs that support speech impaired students in the Douglas County School District. She is leading the installation of new Speech to Text systems in class rooms
The grant will help buy equipment that converts the spoken words of a teacher to text for use by hearing impaired students. The system displays the text on a large screen as well on an individual's mobile computer. This allows the impaired hearing student to keep pace with the teacher's lectures.
