Help Us Bridge the Academic Gap - Keep Students On Track for Academic Success
Your Support Makes a Big Difference
Sandy Springs Education Force has been at the forefront of supporting the educational successes of financially vulnerable students in Sandy Springs for over a decade. With support from sponsors, we launched a brand new virtual tutoring program to help elementary school students stay on track with their academics during the pandemic emergency. We also expanded our successful Summer Book Club to ensure students did not lose their reading gains over the summer break. Many students are still facing vast educational gaps, especially children whose families have limited financial means. To help bridge this gap, we are continuing to expand our programs to provide targeted learning support and outreach programs that will make a difference for these public school students.
