“Look for more detail later this year on how you can become involved in our own District’s FASD grant which will start a program for helping our FASD affected communities and citizens. This Vocational team will bring back ideas to add to their own expertise and put together our own plan next year. To become involved, contact Karl or DG Diane.”
