Virtual PLUS+ Student Supply Drive 2020
Back to School may look different this year, but students will still need essential school supplies to start the year off on the right foot!
Every summer, the ACPS Family Engagement Team coordinates a city-wide Backpack + School Supply Drive to collect and then distribute critical school supplies to students who need them the most. This year, as a result of the current pandemic, we are shifting our focus from backpacks to the supplies and equipment that students will need to be successful in Virtual PLUS+.
Instead of physical donations of supplies that would require extensive handling, we are counting on your financial donations to help support:
- Virtual PLUS+ Basic Supply Kits
- Technology Access
- Teacher Designated Projects
During extraordinary times like these, support for our students is needed more than ever— we are especially grateful for generous donors like you! Please see below for more details on how you can donate and the impact of your donation.
Virtual PLUS+ Basic Supply Kit
Help provide students with key items to support learning in a virtual environment. This supply kit will include headphones and a whiteboard along with basic supplies like pencils, crayons, notebooks, highlighters, etc. Each kit costs approximately $20 and will be distributed at designated sites in collaboration with our community partners. All funds raised will be used to purchase school supplies for ACPS students.
Internet Access Support
Help every student be able to access the Virtual PLUS+ curriculum. A $100 donation will fund the purchase of one Kajeet, a mobile wifi device, for a student(s) without reliable internet access at home. A $35 donation supports a monthly data plan. All funds raised will be used to support technology access for ACPS students.
