SOLVE Program

The Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) has implemented a program to provide financial assistance through scholarships to working families with children ages 5-12 (kindergarten – 7th grade).  SOLVE (Supporting Onsite Learning for Virtual Education) program works with current DCSD families. The SOLVE scholarships are awarded for three months and can be extended if a school district continues to offer a virtual-only learning model. This program can support families currently struggling to balance work, school, and family commitments. 

  

SOLVE is administered by the CAPS program, but the income requirements are a little different, so families MIGHT qualify for a SOLVE scholarship even if they do not qualify for a CAPS scholarship. 

  

Families apply for SOLVE scholarships using Georgia Gateway www.gateway.ga.gov.They choose their child care provider from all CAPS eligible providers at the time they apply. Families approved for a SOLVE scholarship receive an email providing basic scholarship information as soon as they are approved. SOLVE scholarships are viewable for providers in the CAPS billing portal two days after approval. The scholarships are billed in the same manner as CAPS scholarships in the CAPS billing portal. SOLVE payments are included in a child care provider’s typical CAPS payment.  

Below are links to documents that provide more information about SOLVE: 

  

1.   A letter to families from Commissioner Amy Jacobs that provides more detail about the program   

 

2.   An informational flyer 


3.   A family eligibility document that can be used to help families determine if they may qualify  

  

On the SOLVE page, is a FAQ document that explains more and a current list of approved school districts.


If we can assist or support you and your family, please contact our wonderful counselors, Ms. Alexander at shanell_alexander@dekalbschoolsga.org or Mr. Oseni at saidi_oseni@dekalbschoolsga.org. If you need assistance in Spanish, please reach out to Ms. De La Cruz at olivia_de_la_cruz@dekalbschoolsga.org.

DIGITAL LEARNING PLATFORMS/ SCHOOL COMMUNICATION

Evansdale will be moving exclusively to Seesaw in the near future.  Please make sure that you have downloaded both the Family & Class App.  These apps allow you and your student to connect with teachers through messaging, work journals & assignment feedback.  The Family app is used for Evansdale communications while the Class app is used for student work. 

    • You should be connected to your child's specials teachers and homeroom teacher.   
    • Your child's academic teachers, outside of their homeroom, are able to message, distribute assignments, etc., under your child's homeroom teacher class tab. 
    • Please take the time to watch the video tutorials available on YouTube for navigating the app. Click HERE for available videos. Click HERE for the Spanish video.  
    • Still Have Questions?  Mrs. Petrucelli (our wonderful art teacher and Seesaw ambassador) has offered to help families one-on-one for those that need additional assistance.  Please reach out to her at rachel_petrucelli@dekalbschoolsga.org and check out this helpful Padlet link. 
Google Classroom  

Google Classroom is used by our students in grades 3-5 as a starting point for their assignments, materials, calendars, and information about video conferencing. This learning management system is the platform where students in 3-5 will turn in and obtain feedback and grades from their teachers. Some assignments will be linked to Seesaw to be added to their student portfolios.  

 

Please take the time to watch this video tutorial on YouTube for navigating Google Classroom.
