TPS teams up with local agencies to offer Blizzard Bag help

Posted: Updated:

TPS is partnering with area agencies to offer students support completing blizzard bags. the district used 13 calamity days because of the brutal winter.

Spring Break is just a few weeks away for TPS and school leaders want to make sure students use their time wisely.

Students will have 2 weeks to complete blizzard bags but they will have support if they need it. Dr. Romules Durant tells 13abc, "some of them are actually getting them done before spring break but ultimately when they have down time we wanted to provide them with an opportunity to do them during that window of time and not only have the support services from our teachers but also support services from surrounding agencies.

TPS is partnering with YMCAA/JCC, Boys and Girls Club and the Toledo Lucas County Public Library to offer blizzard bag help to students who need it.

Sarah Otis tells 13abc, "many of our programs are wanting children to excel and to make sure they are meeting benchmarks particularly our 21st century programs where they are doing academic enrichment so we feel year round we need to support that.

There will be several opportunities for students to get help from their teachers and take advantage of after school or spring break help hours provided by partnering agencies
