Pivoting to meet the immediate demand for “a safer learning environment” created by the COVID-19 crisis, Incline Education Fund (IEF) mobilized to find a solution. In doing so, IEF created both:
Outdoor Classrooms. By working with each school or their parent groups (Boosters), IEF purchased: tents, sun shades, tree stump seating, whiteboards and portable hand-washing stations for all of our K-12 Incline Schools (Incline Elementary School, Incline Middle School, Incline High School and Lake Tahoe School), enabling each to hold some of their classes outside.
Safer indoor classrooms. The Incline Middle and High School buildings are both over 50 years old and do not have adequate air filtration systems. The Incline High School Boosters and IEF purchased both air purifiers for interior classrooms and remote teaching equipment (webcams and microphones) for teachers to make the remote teaching experience the best that it can be.
