Uplifting Stories from the Charter Community IV

Uplifting Stories from the Charter Community IV

March 27, 2020

This post is part of an ongoing series sharing the positive stories that have come out of the challenges our schools are facing. To see all of the posts in this series, click here.

In a short amount of time, COVID-19 has changed the way we live. The term social distancing is a new norm—and families around the world are forced to adapt to new routines. While the lives of many have changed significantly, one thing that has remained consistent is the drive of school leaders and teachers to continue serving their students the best way they can. Despite the problems many Americans are facing, there are many examples that show how educators are going the extra mile.

KIPP Comes Through on Educational Equity

School officials at KIPP Newark say the pandemic will not stop them from fulfilling their promise to students to help them become college ready. The school sent 3,000 laptops home to equip students with the tools they need continue learning online. For parents who do not currently have access to the internet, the school is also helping by connecting families with service providers ensuring all students have access to online materials.

Charter Schools Donate Food and Supplies

Erie County Medical Center in New York is shouting out a Buffalo charter school’s Girl Scout troop. Troop #34366 donated boxes of cookies to the hospital. The troop also included a handwritten note thanking medical professionals for their efforts, as they are on the frontlines battling COVID-19. Check out the colorful note from the troop here. In Massachusetts, leaders at Atlantis Charter School are also showing gratitude to medical professionals. The school donated masks, gloves, wipes and gowns to SouthCoast Health. In Oklahoma City, John Rex Charter School (JRCS) helped at-risk community members by donating hand sanitizer and Clorox wipes to a nursing home.
