Greenwich Alliance for Education Pivots to Meet Needs
With the transformation from school-based education to distance learning, the Greenwich Alliance for Education is pivoting to meet the short and long-term needs of the Greenwich Public Schools, both for teachers and students. They continue to focus, in particular, on the educational needs of the AVID community – teachers, students, and alums - as many of the AVID students are those being provided food and other human service needs through other agencies. The Alliance is funding requests for school supplies and books, teaching Tuning In To Music lessons via Skype, and working with their grantees to provide virtual content. The Alliance can handle more of these educational requests right away and is in contact with school administrators and other non-profit organizations to determine needs as they arise.
