Buffalo Public Schools and Say Yes Buffalo are opening as many as 52 of the Virtual Learning Support Centers all around Buffalo, according to WGRZ. The Centers will help students in kindergarten through eighth grade, who are learning virtually. They will be free for students whose parents earn less than 85% of the state median income.
Each of the Centers will be able to serve 20 students. They are being in part by CARES Act funding for Erie County. The centers will be opening soon, on Monday October 5 and will stay open until December 31. You can get more details on Say Yes' website.
