Learning Launchpad | Virtual Learning Support
Learning Launchpad locations are providing FREE school-day care for St. Lucie Public Schools' MySchool students whose families have been impacted by COVID-19. Through a partnership with St. Lucie County, the Children's Services Council along with its network of funded afterschool program providers are offering parents a free option for their child during the school day.
Families opting to participate in a Learning Launchpad location will have access to one of the many local youth development organizations where their child can participate in virtual learning outside of their home, but remain in a safe environment with trained staff to assist them. Each location will be equipped based on current CDC guidelines to appropriately space youth, provide personal protective equipment and cleaning/sanitation supplies for staff. Students will be placed in groups of 9 youth to 1 staff member.
The St. Lucie County Board of County Commissioners is partnering with Children’s Services Council in providing funding for this unique program through the CARES Act funds, which were allocated to the county this past spring.
In order to qualify for the program, families must be deemed essential employees or earn under 120% of the area’s median income. Essential employees should contact Boys & Girls Clubs for their registration information.
Income qualifications are listed below:
