Educational platform for middle schools
Having been made aware of the disconnect between parents,
students, and the education process, most notably in during the middle school years;
the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs is the impetus for creating a collaboration
between the Sandy Springs middle schools, the Sandy Springs Educational Force
(SSEF,) the Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB,) and the Rotary Club of Sandy
Springs (RCSS) to address the problem.
The Grant will enable the RCSS to address the issue and begin the
process of aligning disconnect with the Georgia Standards for families.
The needs assessment (phase 1) has been completed by Georgia State University ( the club payment has been processed and the district grant requirements are in progress.) I have spoken with SSEF and they are prepared to begin working with Rotary, the parents, students, and administration at the beginning of the next school year with GPB being included in the process as appropriate during the school year
