Three Aperture Education Customers Receive Wallace Foundation Grants for Social-Emotional Learning Partnerships
Wallace Foundation initiative brings together schools and afterschool organizations
Charlotte N.C. (Jan. 23, 2018) — Three Aperture Education customers have been selected to receive multiyear grants from The Wallace Foundation as part of the foundation’s Partnerships for Social and Emotional Learning Initiative. The initiative supports partnerships between urban school districts and out-of-school time organizations to help children develop skills such as self-control, teamwork, persistence and goal-setting. One goal of the initiative is to directly benefit the school districts and partner organizations and the students they serve. Another goal is to learn whether and how aligning school and afterschool SEL practices helps students in grades K-6 – knowledge that can help strengthen practice within the field.
