The Family Support program provides classroom teachers and neighborhood schools with the resources to address the basic needs of students, such as shoes, school supplies, winter coats, and emergency dental care.
Working with the Utah Food Bank, the foundation and district have been able to distribute food to Title I schools on a regular schedule. This effort relies upon a corps of professional staff and highly trained and motivated volunteers to provide this service to students.
The district and foundation believe that children must come to school prepared to learn, meaning they are well clothed, warm, healthy, and have vision correction, if necessary.
In the past two years... the Family Support program has cultivated strong relationships with the Utah Food Bank to support students and families. The Food Bank visits district schools regularly now.
