Supporting Education: Principal Sherri Walker's Story
A Community School's Perspective on the Impact of Necessities and Niceties
”Christmas in the Wards provides a smile for child but also provides relief for parents. Continuing to increase access to devices and the internet to students is critical for learning at home. CPS provided devices and support to CPS households but with so many homes having multiple school-aged children the demand to meet each students unique need for a full day of remote learning continues.”
