Family Feedback

TeamUp Jeffco initially opened in January of 2021 to serve Moore Middle School students on their remote days in the hybrid learning model. Students attended 3 days a week where they logged into their synchronous classes and completed schoolwork with the support of TeamUp staff.

"This is a great idea to remedy the problems my child has faced with the pandemic."

"My daughter was initially dreading doing this program but quickly came to enjoy her time there. She has met some new people and is benefiting not only from the availability of help keeping her on task, but also getting some social interaction - which has been so limited during COVID times."
