The challenges of distance learning has impacted many students this school year. This is especially critical at the high school level, where students who struggle academically as freshman often find it hard to recover sufficiently to reach a goal of attending a four-year university. 

Through a generous gift of $15,000 from Rachel and Richard Wells, along with additional Culver City Education Foundation (CCEF) resources, CCEF has provided funding support for a part time Intervention Counselor at Culver City High School. This new position is solely focused on reaching and supporting those 9th graders who are in danger of failing classes. 

Culver City High School’s principal, Dr. Lisa Cooper, says the number of students with failing grades has dramatically increased during the pandemic. “This new Intervention Counselor will allow us to provide the targeted attention and academic support systems these students need to achieve their goals of graduating and going on to successful futures.” 

Richard Wells is a graduate of Culver City High School who now lives in New York. He wanted to provide resources to increase the ability of CCHS students to benefit from a college education, especially among those students whose families don’t have access to expensive college preparation options. 

Your donations to CCEF help fund programs which support the academic achievement of CCUSD students at every school. Please make an investment in Culver City students with a donation to CCEF today.
