To better meet their students’ educational needs, teachers at YA are increasingly changing and adapting their classroom to facilitate collaborative techniques and activities that have proven effective.
As a result, YA needs new desks for students that are more easily moved and chairs that are separate from the desks to better facilitate group activities and allow for social distancing. These new desks and chairs also have a smooth finish which allows for easier cleaning between uses.
In addition, new locking desks and file cabinets are needed for YA teachers to ensure both the confidentiality of student records and the safety of students. Most of the current desks and file cabinets do not lock which also puts personal belongings at risk.
The funds raised through the business campaign will be used to purchase desks and chairs for students and desks and file cabinets for teachers. Any remaining funds will be used to support ongoing YA needs.
