DI transcends race, gender, and ethnic boundaries to encourage cooperation and productive problem solving in all children. DI is not so much a program as a process. DI has helped teams learn what we must all learn in life:

  • to work cooperatively in teams
  • to push the limit of their imaginations
  • to learn new skills and creative problem-solving tools

Each team exhibited teamwork skills and applied its skills and talents not only to better its competition performance, but to better each individual team member.

School facilitators at participating schools work with teams and their staff volunteer and parent Team Managers to teach the skills and help them learn these valuable lessons. They have made possible the successes we have enjoyed.

This program is a source of pride for our county which is made possible because of the continued support of the instructional leaders in each school.
