Chester County Futures remains dedicated to delivering programming to our student population throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Digital programming for our high school, Passport to College Program began the week of March 23rd with tremendous response (80%) from our student population. Honestly, we anticipated far less. This success is due in three parts, the motivation of our students, the dedication of our team, and the tremendous gift of refurbished laptops from SAP America each year. By January 2020, we were able to place quality used laptops into the hands of 100% of our 9th – 12th grade students with technology needs.
Our students will be receiving weekly challenges to create topic-driven TikTok videos. Winning videos from each district receives Friday night pizza delivered to their homes. We’ll be sharing these videos on our Facebook page, please follow us. If you’d like to sponsor a family pizza party for a winning video, please donate $50 to Chester County Futures through our donate page.
Rest assured, we will use an abundance of caution to protect the health and well-being of all. We will continue to communicate regularly as we move through the coming weeks together. Keep our seniors in your thoughts as we move through the final weeks of their high school education with them.
Chester County Futures continues to be a place where learning continues. Thank you for your continued support and faith in our ability to serve our young people with the academic enrichment and personal supports they need to continue to thrive.
