Recently, iSPACE sent announcements by email, our website, and social media that it is closing permanently due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The iSPACE facility is currently closed, but the iSPACE Board of Trustees has not decided to cease operations permanently. Like many other non-profits and small businesses in our community, iSPACE is indeed facing financial hardships due to the current environment; we also face an uncertain future. But we still believe in our mission to ignite a passion for science and technology to prepare all learners to thrive in tomorrow’s workforce. We are encouraged by the tremendous response from the community about the value we deliver through our mission. Our goal is to work with our team, community, and partners to survive this crisis so that we remain a valuable contributor to our educational system.
The iSPACE Board of Trustees is committed to investigating options to keep iSPACE operational. Under the current environment, some of these options may be unconventional, as we deal with social distancing and closed schools. For summer camps, the Board of Trustees is exploring options to address parents’ concerns. Our number one priority is the safety of students and teachers that participate in our programs as well as our team. iSPACE has engaged new leadership to guide us through these difficult times. We apologize for any confusion and lapse in communication. Please know that we are fully committed to providing transparency and timely communications during this period. As soon as possible, we will contact all of those concerned with details on options and the future direction of iSPACE.
Please contact our interim Executive Director, Sue Hare, with questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
