The Portland Schools have long provided a range of support systems for students who need more time, a different process, or additional help to succeed. But the number of students who are off track academically has grown due to COVID-19. Too many students struggled to connect remotely to school this past spring, and COVID-19 is disproportionately harmful for economically disadvantaged students.
We are building more robust extended learning opportunities and support systems to reconnect with students who struggled. Extended learning programming is planned and targeted to meet individual students’ specific needs (academic, social-emotional, technological). Your donation will support these efforts.
