Thanks to many generous supporters, we are 40% of the way toward our goal of providing every BPS elementary teacher with a license to access a digital version of their literacy curriculum materials! Thank you to everyone who has already given!
This year, $100 is all that it will take to provide one BPS elementary teacher with a digital license for the literacy curriculum materials they use to teach our children every day. Pairing the digital version with the classroom version will give all students a seamless and uninterrupted learning experience — whether they are learning online or in a socially-distanced classroom later this year.
Can you help our teachers by making a $100 gift and funding one license today, so that they can begin the year with this tool?
BPS teachers are among the very best, and we know that they are working hard to ensure our children have the best educational opportunity possible. Tools like these licenses can help make that happen. Will you help us reach our goal of providing all 157 BPS elementary teachers — and all 3,100 elementary students — with a license before school begins?
