The Interfaith Coalition for Public Education, a network of concerned community members dedicated to improving outcomes in Santa Fe Public Schools, welcomes volunteers interested in elementary, middle, or high school classroom tutoring. Formed in 2012, the Interfaith Coalition recruited over 50 volunteers from our faith communities in its first year. Presently Coalition members are recruiting volunteers for several initiatives.
Lynn Heffron is recruiting tutors for math, computer science, engineering, biology, physics, English as a Second Language, French, and Spanish at Santa Fe High School (SFHS) and for math at Sweeney Elementary School. Lynn is also seeking volunteers at SFHS for Project Green, a new initiative to help science and engineering teachers and students produce plants and food on campus. Lynn Heffron, a member of Superintendent Garcia's Project North Star team, also serves on the Superintendent's Diversity and Equity Council.
Lynn Bickley is helping the Early College Opportunities (ECO) High School, the new trades education high school on West Zia, to place mentors and tutors in auto tech, auto collision, construction, environmental science and landscaping, woodworking, welding, and other trades training programs, as well as in core subjects like math and English. Lynn Bickley also participates in the Volunteer Advisory Team for Santa Fe Public Schools (SFPS) headed by Sabra Roybal, SFPS Volunteer Coordinator, and in the Mentoring-Tutoring Hub of the Santa Fe Community Foundation. She also works with the Foundation's MathAmigos Collaborative Working Group, which includes community members and SFPS leaders dedicated to raising SFPS math proficiency, particularly at the eighth grade level.
