The WCSD is partnering with the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast to offer a new initiative to the DeFuniak Springs Club members. Boys and Girls Clubs already help members achieve academic success by providing homework help, tutoring, high-yield learning activities, and encouraging members to become self-directed learners.
This new initiative will assist the club to have direct access to the same education software, resources, applications, etc. being used in their classrooms. In order to fully utilize this educational opportunity, appropriate technological equipment is necessary. Walton County School District has reached out to the Boys and Girls Club through Community Engagement Coordinator, Lori Hughes, to provided 30 laptops. This will allow seamless access to WCSD school accounts for practice, review, study and completion of any homework assigned by their teachers. The goal is to create more opportunities for Boys and Girls Club staff to complement and reinforce learning that takes place during the school day.
Clubs will have access to:
- Khan Academy
- Study Island
- and Much More
