Summary: Providing support for remote learning technologies for high school students with financial difficulties
Education has been and is an effective tool to get way out of poverty, especially for minority community. However, economic challenges make the education difficult for many people. When the pandemic mandates the schools to deliver education remotely, a huge number of students are being deprived of learning experience due to lack of sufficient technological logistics. The Heritage New York Rotary Club proposes providing selected students with support of $5,000 for buying necessary technologies for remote learning. The Club will contact two schools in New York attended by manly low-income community students. After scrutiny of applications, a total of 5 students will be selected and funded for their remote learning technologies.
This project is "Approved". This means that the district leadership has reviewed and approved the allocation of district funds for this project. Once the funds from the district have been issued, the status of the project will be changed to "Paid".
