Missouri students are falling behind.
During the pandemic, school closures and remote learning created unprecedented learning loss and other negative social impacts for kids.
While we can’t take back the mistakes of the past, we can help close the achievement gap by providing direct financial assistance to Missouri students impacted by pandemic restrictions.
Close the Gap grants offer $1,500 in assistance to Missouri families, providing immediate relief for students who lost crucial time in the classroom. These grants can be used to pay for educational enrichment activities that help kids lessen some of their learning loss over the past two years.
Tell your state lawmakers to support Close the Gap grants and allocate funds in the FY 2023 budget to help close the achievement gap for Missouri students.
