Hi there Summer Learning Partners!
It was wonderful to see so many of you at the Summer Learning Town Hall this week! In case you missed it, you can catch the recording here. There is also a slide deck with several helpful resources linked in it.
We also wanted to include some helpful supports which would be something to share with your insurance agent to potentially lower your risk and help you get connected to the coverage you need for any grant through the State of Oregon. When organizations can show they are taking steps to train staff, gather staff/volunteer assurances, and in general protect themselves from risk in meaningful ways, it is more likely insurance will be available. Talk to your insurance agent about these supports. Thanks to Oregon State university for providing samples of what they use:
Finally, we wanted to share a great publication about the power and focus of summer programs, put together by our partners at OregonASK. Please share this broadly so we can keep layering information about the importance of our programs.
We will continue to offer updates here as we have information to share.
