We spoke to Pukkila about the Wired2Learn Academy and its mission. This interview has been edited for greater length and clarity. The Post Falls School District is asking for help identifying any disabled child from 0 to 21 years old who is not enrolled or is not currently receiving services at one of the district's schools. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its education policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and sports programs and other programs administered by schools.
