Education Equity in Remote Learning

Jun 18, 2020 | Sobrato Philanthropies

As we navigate the impacts of the coronavirus crisis and weeks of protests supporting racial justice and systemic change, the English Learner (EL) Initiative portfolio is supporting a set of grantees to deploy a coordinated communications and programmatic response to support ELs throughout the state. Preliminary information from the field has revealed that the needs of ELs are exacerbated during this crisis with many families, students, and teachers lacking the tools and necessary supports to engage in teaching and learning. The grantees below will separately deploy tools and supports for ELs from early childhood throughout high school. Simultaneously they will collectively create and deploy media and communications pieces to surface issues and recommendations to support ELs in the short term and beyond.
