Incoming LA ninth graders during technology orientation, August 2020. Access to technology is more important than ever in providing an equitable education.
We want to thank our generous LA supporters who answered our call this summer. With your help, we raised nearly $20,000 for our special campaign separate from the Annual Fund. You have provided support to address goals centered on student equity in areas of technology and inclusion.
Last spring, we recognized that in order for all of our students to be successful in this current hybrid learning model, we needed to ensure LA families had access to technology at home. This fall, you helped provide Chromebooks, software, and portable internet hotspot devices to students who needed them for remote learning. In addition, your generosity funded essential professional development to better support the remote teaching work of our faculty.
In June, the administration met with current and former students and several faculty members who shared their experiences of the racial equity climate at Lincoln Academy, the local community and beyond. Our donors supported the launch of an inclusive process for all members of the Lincoln Academy community – students, parents, alumni, and faculty and staff – to better understand and participate in our nation’s diversity and equity dialogue for meaningful change.
Thank you for preparing us to begin the fall with a stronger footing and positive direction for our students and community members. We did this together!
