SCCPSS ‘Operation Beacon’ encouraging community to volunteer at local schools

CHATHAM COUNTY, Ga. (WSAV) – Students who are apart of the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System will soon be returning to classes.

But this year, the school district is launching a new initiative called Operation Beacon. The objective is to make sure there are enough volunteers to lend a helping hand with everything from tutoring to extra curricular activities during and after the school day.

SCCPSS spokeswoman Sheila Blanco visited The Bridge on Friday to explain how this program works and why this program is important.
