Bridgeport Rotary Donation to Help With Education Amid COVID

The Bridgeport Rotary Foundation is donating about $200,000 to the city’s Board of Education to improve learning efforts during the COVID pandemic. Hearst Connecticut reports half of the money will be allocated to improving WiFi in the city’s largest housing complexes and the other half will be for advancing social and emotional learning. There’s no estimate yet on how many students will be helped by the improvements.
