Succeeding Through Connection
During this unprecedented time of adaptation, DTS continues to provide support for our students in every way that we can. We FaceTime, we Zoom, we set up WiFi accounts, we don masks and gloves to deliver supplies, we continue to connect. Virtual trivia night, talent shows, and group meditation sessions are part of our new normal at DTS.
Remote learning is profoundly more difficult for low-income students than others. Crowded living conditions and insufficient tech access are just two of many challenges facing our students. In addition to our usual services, DTS has increased its mental health support and is offering vital family resources to help ensure student safety and morale. As always, we remain steadfast in our mission to help underserved students realize their goals of high school and college graduation and set themselves on the path to fulfilling futures.
Students remain connected through activities like the DTS Virtual Talent Show. Below, 10th graders Noemi and Jasmine, whose families are staying Safer at Home together, perform a duet.
