The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) is providing more than $1 million to help schools create wraparound centers for their students.
The wraparound centers will operate before, during, and after the traditional school day, connecting students and families with resources to support and improve student achievement.
“Our job, and our responsibility to students, doesn’t end when the school bell rings,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “These wraparound centers will provide the support kids need to be ready to learn. They’ll begin to address the barriers to learning that are in place for so many of our students.”
The $1,040,000 provided by GaDOE and approved by the State Board of Education this week, based on Woods’ recommendation, will fund a regional Wraparound coordinator in each of Georgia’s Regional Education Service Agencies (RESAs).
