Supporting Jeffco Students & Families during COVID-19

COVID-19 has put unprecedented challenges on schools while catapulting parents into a teaching role they were not prepared to manage. As schools fluctuate between in-person, hybrid, and fully remote learning models, many students and families are struggling while school staff is stretched to capacity.

TeamUp Jeffco program sites opened in January of 2021 to provide support to students learning in the hybrid model while engaging parent and community as active partners in this collaborative process in close communication with school leadership.

With the shift to either fully in-person or fully remote options only in April, TeamUp Jeffco is restructuring to focus its support on middle school students who have opted for fully remote learning. Students will be provided with pencil-and-paper work to help aid skill recovery in math and reading while still being exposed to grade-level core content as well as opportunities for creativity and physical activity.

The mission of TeamUp Jeffco is to provide Jeffco middle school students with support for crucial skill recovery in light of academic setbacks exacerbated by COVID-19.

By providing focused, individualized support, primarily in math and reading skills, and by directly engaging families in student progress, students will become more confident about their future academic success.

For Jeffco Students & Families

TeamUp Jeffco welcomes Jeffco middle school students who have chosen the fully remote learning model, particularly those with failing grades or incompletes in their core classes, giving priority to 8th grade students to focus on skills for high school preparedness.

The TeamUp Jeffco site is FREE for students to attend. Starting Monday, April 19, the program runs from 7:30am-2:30pm, Monday-Friday, with the option for students to stay for afterschool care from 2:30-4:00pm.

Staff & Volunteer Roles

TeamUp Jeffco is led by Program Director Jean Boylan, supported by a combination of paid and volunteer positions.

By the Jeffco Community

TeamUp Jeffco is supported by the Jeffco Schools Foundation with the goal that no student is turned away from the program due to inability to pay.

TeamUp Jeffco was kickstarted by a Jeffco Hope Fund grant from the Community First Foundation and generous donations from the Jeffco community.
