“While virtual learning has presented some unique challenges to education, we have also been pleasantly surprised by some unexpected benefits this year. ITEF has allowed us to provide an equitable learning environment for our students. With the return to school, we will be able to pilot this program as it was originally intended so we are grateful for this partnership.”
