Supporting Our Students Action Team

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 exists 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 is 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.
