Hershorin Schiff Community Day School (CDS) announced that it has received an $8,000 Community Impact Grant from the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. The grant will help fund books and technology for its Janis Kaplan Multicultural Media Center. Dan Ceaser, Community Day’s head of school, explains that, when CDS secured a permanent campus in Sarasota one year ago, installing a state-of-the-art multicultural media center directed by a qualified media specialist was top on its wish list.

“This generous grant allows us to expand the materials and resources needed to reflect a 21st-century school multimedia center—one which offers faculty and students the opportunity to explore a diversity of experiences, voices, and perspectives from around the world,” says Ceaser. “The funds help us provide a wealth of library resources, technology tools, tutoring, and other academic support services. We envision this as a creative learning hub for people of all ages and interests to gather to explore and debate ideas. We are grateful to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County for helping CDS create a center of learning that connects students to our community—and to a world of ideas.” Community Day School opened its new campus, with record enrollment, on August 16, 2021.
