Hartford, CT - Achieve Hartford! announced today that the George A. and Grace L. Long Foundation, through U.S. Trust, Bank of America, Co-Trustee, has awarded the organization a $2,000 grant in support of its Choice Education Program.

Achieve Hartford!’s Choice Education Program focuses on parents with children entering kindergarten, as well as those with students transitioning to middle school and high school. Now in its fourth year, the program is working hard to push shared responsibility among the school district, early learning centers and community partners for assisting parents with navigating the multiple school choice processes. Information on schools will continue to be delivered 1-on-1 to parents, through workshops, and through www.SmartChoicesHartford.org, the first online tool of its kind in the nation.

“Our Choice Education Program takes a different approach to school choice by creating a city-wide push for deep parental engagement that goes beyond filling out an application before a deadline. Every parent in Hartford should have access to the information they need to make a fully informed decision on what is the best educational opportunities for their children,” said Paul Diego Holzer, Achieve Hartford!’s executive director. “Receiving support from the Long Foundation for this work is helping us to reach hundreds of families in Hartford, particularly those with children in Pre-K. We thank the George A. and Grace L. Long Foundation and Bank of America, Co-Trustee for their continued support of Achieve Hartford!”
