GREENFIELD — When Shannah and Jadon Brinley came home, begging to participate in the J.B. Stephens Elementary Pilot/Co-Pilot Program, their parents just couldn’t say no.
The 7-year-old twins didn’t know all the details, just that they’d been specially picked for the program by their teachers.
The Pilot/Co-Pilot Program pairs students with a teacher who will encourage them both during and outside of school.
The idea is that the children – there are 14 participating this year – are in the pilot’s seat, and the teachers act as helpful guides along the way.
