SCHOOL & COllab assignments
We’re excited to share current school and collab projections for Summer Training. While these projections for the most part will stay consistent throughout the summer, we want to acknowledge that they may change by the beginning of summer school based on student attendance. This is a reality that schools face at the beginning of every school year. Enrollment numbers in the fall can affect budgets, staff placements, and class sizes, and schools problem-solve through that each year. It’s the same for Teach For America at Summer Training. While we hope to keep school and collab assignments as close to this list as possible, we ask that you extend grace when change does occur and continue to engage and ask questions when adapting to a new situation. Thank you for your understanding.
