Carecorps

Every Rocketship school has designated a CareCorps of at least four educators who are responsible for contacting every Rocketship family, every day. Their mission is to support our most vulnerable families who are experiencing the destabilizing impacts of the COVID-19 crisis. CareCorps sends a brief wellness survey to all families to ensure everyone feel safe at home and identifies any needs in the school community. The team then follows up with direct outreach to families who indicated they need support. The CareCorps then connects families with the services and resources they need. To connect with your regional CareCorps, please reach out to your school’s office manager.
