The purpose of this project was to identify potential funding sources and complete a grant application to obtain funds to implement a web-based program entitled, Adoption in the Schools. The web-module was designed to enhance teacher's awareness of adoption issues and how these issues can impact student learning. Studies suggest that adoptive children, due to previous experiences and feelings of loss, exhibit a host of issues that affect the way they learn and experience school. Educational professionals are often unaware of adoption issues, the reasons for them, and why the adopted child acts as he or she does in the classroom. This can result in a negative response to the child, further hindering their academic experience. The proposed project intends to increase educator's awareness of adoption issues and result in a more positive experience for adoptive students. This web-module is already in existence, therefore funding was only sought for implementation of the pilot program. Submission and funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for this thesis project.
