During this time of challenges, the work here at the Brookline Education Foundation (BEF) continues — albeit remotely. In mid-April, our Board committees awarded 32 grants, totaling more than $200,000, to Brookline teachers. We have also responded directly to the COVID-19 crisis by funding a special Districtwide Grant to immediately train teachers in remote learning and online curriculum development instruction. Although we had to cancel our Trivia Bee fundraising event and won’t be gathering at Celebrating Teachers to present 2020 Caverly Awards, we remain focused on our mission: the professional learning of educators at every Brookline school. We cannot fulfill this mission without the support of our generous donors.
