We are very pleased to inform you that the James H. Napier Foundation has awarded CfAL with a $5,200 grant.
This grant will permit CfAL to expand its parent computer program, not just for students living in the Meriden Choice Neighborhood, but for all Meriden Public School students.
Through this grant and funding from other sources, CfAL will give computer training to 40 disadvantaged parents who have children attending Meriden Public Schools.
Upon completing training, CfAL will give the families a gently-used computer, running current software, and install the computer in their home. The families will also receive a year of technical support. These actions will help extend learning beyond the 4 walls of the classroom for the students, and increase parents’ involvement in their children’s education.
This news is exciting, but also important is the James H. Napier Foundation’s Trustees’ confidence in CfAL’s capability to help improve the academic achievement of Meriden Public School students.
On behalf of our Board, staff and volunteers, we are truly thankful for the continued support and grant award from the James H. Napier Foundation.
CfAL Board of Directors
