Codman Academy Partners with Animal Rescue League of Boston
The League and the school launched the partnership as part of ARL's "Healthy Animals-Healthy Communities" initiative.
The partnership’s scope extends beyond the school as well, to the full Codman Square community.
Particular to the school, students will have access to a new 10-week course: “More than Just Pets: Animals in the Community.” From the Dorcester Reporter:
The students will be given the opportunity to explore the relationship between humans and animals and the role animals play in the overall mental, social, and physical wellness of humans. They will also interact with an array of different animals and study their behaviors while learning further information on the overall care and welfare of the animals they’re studying.
