Be a part of Learning Launch 2020, our 4th annual back-to-school drive that accelerates student learning, whether in the classroom or via remote learning. Your gift will equip educators and students with teacher-requested learning supplies not provided by limited public-school budgets. Teachers spend an average of $600 annually of their own money to ensure their students have the tools they need to succeed. Learning Launch seeks to fill these critical resource gaps.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year, schools will look much different than they have in the past. With an emphasis on reduced sharing of materials and social distancing, new learning tools and individual supplies will be in huge demand. Your meaningful donation will provide much-needed support to ensure students are ready to succeed this fall.
TWO WAYS YOU CAN HELP
1. MAKE A DONATION
With a focus on literacy education and specific feedback from teachers across our schools, Learning Launch seeks to fulfill every request across all 53 Dallas ISD partner elementary schools city-wide, benefiting 28,500 students and 2,500 educators.
Here is a sample of what your generous donation will provide:
$5,000 – Ready entire campus for social distance learning
$2,500 – Provide ten classroom rugs for socially-distanced circle time
$1,000 – Outfit two classrooms with flex furniture to meet new teaching guidelines
$500 – Supply 25 individual students with literacy kits
$250 – Gift a classroom with technology accessories for individualized learning
