I’m a student or caregiver who is looking for distance learning and/or financial resources.COVID-19 is impacting the educational experience of every student in Stockton. During this time, Stockton school districts and universities are providing regular updates and online learning resources to their students. Furthermore, organizations are working to support students who have been financially impacted by COVID-19.
Resources for All Students
San Joaquin Virtual Peer-tutoring Network
The San Joaquin County Education Initiative is a group where students can sign up to either be tutors (for Community Service hours, or just out of their desire to support peers), or sign up to get support with virtual assignments.
Here is the link to their webpage. Call 209-244-0721 if you’d like to follow up for additional info.
Student aid for current college students
Stockton Scholars is assessing college student needs in the community to inform the potential launch of an emergency fund for eligible students. We know that students will face unexpected expenses and a likely loss of wages during this time due to the lack of paid family and medical leave. Some may need plane fare to get home, while others need money to pay their rent. Please complete the survey below if you are a college student to help us understand the impact on our current college students.
