Supporting Our Students Action Team

The closure of the Supporting Our Students Action Team was announced in April 2022. The Supporting Our Students Action Team was convened at the request of several community stakeholders in response to changes in education resulting from the COVID-19 global pandemic.

This action team existed to expand opportunities and address equity for students impacted by the move to off-site, virtual learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. The focus of the team’s work was on social-emotional/trauma-informed practices/professional development for non-profit partners working with students. This team is a continuation of the work of the Childcare for Students team, which was created during the pandemic to address the need for childcare for school-age students as a result of off-site learning models.
