How Do Community Organizations Support COVID-19 Recovery Efforts? Introducing the Intermediary Insights Series

Partnerships between school districts and community organizations continue to play an invaluable role in supporting students and families who are disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and school closures. Here, we share insights Out-Of-School Time(OST) and Extended Learning Opportunity(ELO) intermediaries about how they’ve worked with schools and communities to support students, families, and educators in the midst of the pandemic.
