Our project : GET Alliance Francaise San Francisco READY FOR THE FUTURE

 

Why ?


As you know, 2020 has been a challenging year in many ways. We have been adapting to different situations responsively. 

On March 13, we held a mandatory training on online classes for our teachers. On the 16th, the “shelter-in-place” order was announced, and on the 17th, all our activities and classes for adults were transferred online, and after the spring break, kids programs resumed online too. Our team worked extremely hard to launch an exercise platform, get accustomed to the new technologies, and develop new tools and techniques to keep our virtual classes interactive. In June, following the San Francisco Health Department’s new regulations, we were able to reopen our summer camps with a range of COVID19 Prevention measures. In September, in order to provide an educational environment to younger kids (kindergarten to second grade) and alleviate the learning gap, we opened a French immersion learning camp. 

We are very proud of our 2020 achievements, and we are now planning for the next step.  As our onsite classes will probably resume only mid-2021, we think it would be a great time to undergo some changes and renovations and get ready for what comes next. 

 

How can  my support make a difference?  




Getting our facilities ready for reopening

  • Update classroom furniture with desks allowing for social distancing.
  • Replace the carpet in the front desk, library and offices with a flooring that can be easily and thoroughly cleaned.
  • Install a new ceiling in upstairs classrooms 1 to 5.
  • Paint upstairs corridor. 


Upgrade Technology equipment and solutions

  • Invest in technology solutions so students could choose between coming onsite or following the class from their home or office. 
  • Launch a new exercise platform. This projet has already been initiated and will be tested by some of classes in may 2021.
