SchoolsRule Provides $650,000 in Funds

img_thank you
Last week, SchoolsRule provided $650,000 in funds to Marin public school districts which was announced at our 9th annual distribution celebration via Zoom on October 27th!  Although less than last year's record breaking $1M distribution, this was an amazing achievement considering current circumstances, offering critical funding at a time when our schools need our support now more than ever. Thanks to the continued generosity of our donor community, since 2012, SchoolsRule has distributed a total of nearly $5.5M to districts countywide supporting programs in the areas of literacy, technology, the arts and health. To learn more, watch the full recording of the event and read our article in the Marin IJ.

Program Spotlight: Countywide Social-Emotional Learning Program to Address the COVID-19 Pandemic

Online Classrooms and Virtual Learning
Dedication to Special Education will direct SchoolsRule funds to a new comprehensive program developed to support the social-emotional learning (SEL) and mental health needs of students, parents, and school staff stemming from the COVID-19 Pandemic . The program is available to ALL Marin public schools and is specifically tailored to address the pandemic-related social-emotional needs of school communities, while simultaneously developing global SEL skills through a customizable curriculum for K-8 students, professional development and coaching for educators as well as parent education. Learn how each of our foundations are utilizing their SchoolsRule funds this school year by visiting our funding impact page.
