Community Day School Receives Grant Through COVID-19 Response Initiative

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY AUG 26, 2020

Hershorin Schiff Community Day School recently received a “Software and Learning Equipment” grant of $5,000 from Gulf Coast Community Foundation and Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Initiative. This grant has funded training and the purchase of technology that is helping Community Day School to remain accessible for all of its families, whether they choose in-person or virtual learning for their students.“With the Google technology, students who opt for virtual learning can feel like they’ve got a seat in the front row of a classroom,” said head of school Dan Ceaser. “As our school year begins, we know parents and caretakers are struggling with making the ‘right’ decision for their students and families. We are so grateful for the grant from the COVID-19 Response Initiative of the Gulf Coast Community Foundation and Barancik Foundation, which is ensuring an equitable learning experience for all of our students – whether they are in the classroom or livestreaming from home.”
