Pulling Together Matters
The Public Education Foundation supports efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 throughout our state and nation. Therefore, we have temporarily suspended programs we provide in schools and closed our campus on Maryland Parkway to most outside visitors.
We also have temporarily closed our Teacher EXCHANGE®. Teachers may still order classroom supplies online and items will be delivered upon return to school.
We continue to provide resources to our students, parents, and educators:
- Our Scholarships PLUS program is in the middle of our review process to award more than $2.6 million in college scholarships to high school seniors. We anticipate announcing scholarship winners no later than May 1
- We are working with parent alumni of our Family Learning Program to provide support while their children are home from school
- We are partnering with other organizations to distribute books, STEM workbooks, and classroom supplies from our Teacher EXCHANGE to students throughout the county
- We are helping The Clark County School District reach the estimated one-third of the district’s 320,000 students who do not have access to computers, the internet or their teachers as a result of COVID-19
Even if we can’t collaborate in person, we can continue our work together for all of our students and their families. Together, as a community, we must rally to support each other and get through the challenges that face us today.
