College Bound - Remote
Chano and Will are working hard to provide the College Bound (CB) students with the community, enrichment, and college guidance they need. Each grade has a dedicated platform on Google Hangout or Google Classroom where students keep in touch with CB staff and peers. Through these platforms students receive program updates, as well as college and career readiness tools and activities.
For our 12th graders, Chano is offering additional support for their individual college. We connect with them through email, text, and video chats. This is a crucial time for seniors to understand the college decisions they are receiving, as well as the financial aid packages. Now more than ever, we are committed to supporting students in their journey to make informed college choices and prepare for their transition to college.
CB chess continues every day with the help of digital learning resources. Each student has a Pro membership to Chessable, an online learning site that allows students to use a computer trainer to learn tactics, openings, endgames, and general lessons. We have 60-80 students participating in the Daily Blitz events on Lichess every evening. We have plans to utilize Zoom for group lessons and look forward to doing a video lesson every Thursday.
