Warren City Schools, in partnership with Inspiring Minds, has been awarded a $125,000 grant to support remote learning among students in grades 7-12.
The award, announced by Philanthropy Ohio and the Ohio Department of Education on Monday, is being provided through the Collaborative Fund for Educating Remotely and Transforming Schools (the Collaborative Fund).
The Warren City Schools and Inspiring Minds project are among 29 being funded through this second round of awards. The focus of the project is to support students academically, socially and emotionally by building strengths as it relates to careers, leadership development and community service.
“The Warren City Schools has had a long-standing relationship with Inspiring Minds,” said Associate Superintendent Wendy Hartzell. “This grant allows us to expand our partnership and opportunities for students in these unique learning environments.”
The students will receive support through Inspiring Minds during their remote learning days. Students will complete work and receive academic assistance as needed with adult support and supervision.
Through this collaboration, Warren City Schools and Inspiring Minds staff will evaluate which supports are demonstrating to be most effective for students involved in the program and how those supports may be replicated for students not directly involved.
