GRANT AWARDED TO FAYETTE COUNTY SCHOOLS – FOSTERING ACADEMICS
The West Virginia Bar Foundation Board of Directors approved a $5,000 grant to Fayette County Schools’ Fostering Academics program. The Fostering Academics program provides students in foster care with supplies and support that will create a better opportunity to be successful in the classroom and beyond. This program provides a procedure for children in foster care in Fayette County to receive materials and supplies needed to aid in their education.
The program incorporates social workers and/or school counselors into the schools, meeting with the child individually, and assessing which supplies the child needs. Examples of supplies include educational materials, books, supplies, clothing, backpacks, shoes, and/or other educational aids. The social worker and/or school counselor will regularly meet with the child for the remainder of the schoolyear to continuously monitor the child’s needs and academic progress.
