LPMP has recently issued a grant award to Ravenswood Classroom Partners. The organization offers a range of tutoring programs to Ravenswood City School District school students. Grant allocations will support remote tutoring programs and book distribution events. Currently, 500+ Ravenswood students are receiving personalized virtual learning tutoring assistance. Relying on community volunteers, the organization has mobilized efforts to work in partnership with teachers and students for personalized tutoring. Angie Holman, Executive Director at Ravenswood Classroom Partners, notes “over 80% of the District’s student population is below grade level in reading”.


Of most concern is a pressing issue for the next school year in “making up for the learning loss created by the Covid-19 pandemic and determining strategies for helping students catch up”, remarked Angie. To help with this issue, there will be a summer school program and 1:1 tutoring support throughout the summer.

LPMP was able to issue the grant through donations targeting literacy advancement programs. With an expanded focus in the larger community, LPMP will support organizations working to address literacy education in the Menlo Park community.
