Niner University Elementary Remote Learning Needs

Niner University Elementary (NUE) at Amay James is a public school created and led by education experts at UNC Charlotte.

In the face of challenges posed by opening an elementary school in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, NUE is responding with optimism but needs community support since unexpectedly forced to open this fall with fully remote learning.

“Opening NUE has been a labor of love, years in the making. While we know we’ll need to be flexible during the coming year, we’re thrilled to welcome our students and families and begin our journey as part of this community,” said Pamela Broome, principal of NUE.

Help NUE meet the urgent and unforeseen needs of remote learning.

Currently, there are six families that cannot access the internet to complete assignments via remote instruction. Your support can help provide the following needs: basic school supplies for students to do hands-on learning while following teacher lessons; in-home play therapy to reduce the stress of learning in a home environment, and internet access for these families.

Making a donation today will help these young students have the resources they need to learn right away.

Teacher preparing classroom at Niner University Elementary

Interns from the UNC Charlotte school counseling program will provide telemental health services to support students throughout the year. NUE has hired a social worker and UNC Charlotte social work intern as well as a school guidance counselor to support students and families. 

NUE will ultimately provide UNC Charlotte’s Cato College of Education the opportunity to train teachers, counselors and school leaders. Teacher preparation and development at NUE will be centered on embedded, multi-semester clinicals for teachers in training. Your donation will help cover composition books, curriculum materials to aid in learning and support other areas in need at Niner University Elementary.
