Last week, the New Mexico Economic Development Department (gonm.biz) and the Small Business Administration presented a webinar to assist small business owners in applying for government economic relief opportunities. The webcast of that presentation is available online (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnVEK9nqjjY&feature=youtu.be). Additional forms, including application and information sheets about the paycheck protection program, and a question and answer sheet, are available as attachments to the El Valle Community Center News Blog FOR FAMILIES LEARNING AT HOME
Local schools as well as the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) are providing information, resources, and support for students learning at home. NMPED has a list of resources to help teachers and families access supplemental resources and learning ideas (https://webnew.ped.state.nm.us/…/safe…/covid-19-coronavirus/). Older students can get help with their assignments by using the Brainfuse (http://home.brainfuse.com/) online study and tutoring portal. Students can also do research and learning using Kids Info-Bits ( https://go.gale.com/ps/start.do…). This site provides information about a wide range of topics, and offers full audio versions for many entries.
A partnership between the Albuquerque Public Schools and New Mexico public media stations is bringing new educational opportunities to students who are now learning from home. Beginning April 6th, public broadcasting stations will provide lessons to support learning for students ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade. According to an article in the Las Cruces Sun News, “educational broadcasts will cover an array of subjects and give elementary-aged students the opportunity to access valuable learning tools even though they are unable to physically attend class for the remainder of the year.” Lesson topics and grade-level materials will be provided according to a daily M-F schedule available at KRWG learning website (https://www.krwg.org/learning). Programming will also be available on-demand for viewing after the event through the APS youtube video channel (http://home.brainfuse.com/) and will include bi-lingual materials.
