Esta propuesta, que sería financiada a través de los fondos restantes de la Ley CARES, apoyaría el acceso a programas de cuidado infantil para niños en edad escolar para las familias que necesitan cuidado debido a los modelos de aprendizaje combinado o remoto, expandiría las opciones de cuidado infantil en áreas donde actualmente existen pocos proveedores y ayudaría los proveedores que atienden a niños en edad escolar en comunidades de bajos ingresos a apoyar a los niños al proporcionar subvenciones para sustentar las actualizaciones respecto de la salud, la seguridad y la infraestructura necesaria para facilitar el aprendizaje remoto en estos ámbitos.“Esta emergencia de salud pública no ha terminado, y vendrán retos que los proveedores afrontarán por su dedicación a las familias a las que sirven. Los proveedores no deberían tener que atravesar estos retos por su cuenta, y debemos brindar apoyo a los proveedores y a las familias trabajadoras de todas las formas posibles”, dijo la Secretaria del DHS, Teresa Miller. “Esta inversión de $220 millones de dólares ha ayudado a los proveedores a reanudar sus operaciones y adaptarse al funcionamiento en este nuevo mundo, y estos $250 millones de dólares adicionales permitirán a los proveedores continuar apoyando las necesidades de las familias afectadas por estos tiempos desafiantes”.Para obtener más información sobre los proveedores de cuidado infantil que operan durante la crisis de salud pública a causa de la COVID-19, visite www.dhs.pa.gov.View this information in English.

Debemos recordar esto a medida que avanzamos y continuamos apoyando a los proveedores de cuidado infantil mientras cuidan a los pequeños de Pennsylvania y permiten que los padres trabajen para que nuestras comunidades y nuestra economía puedan prosperar”.A principios de este verano, la Administración Wolf distribuyó alrededor de $104 millones de dólares en fondos de la Ley CARES a proveedores de cuidado infantil habilitados por la Oficina de Desarrollo Infantil y Aprendizaje Temprano (OCDEL, por sus siglas en inglés) del Departamento de Servicios Humanos. El método de distribución de esta última ronda de financiación de la Ley CARES se basa en las conclusiones de los investigadores del Instituto de Asuntos Estatales y Regionales de Penn State Harrisburg, que estudió el impacto de la COVID-19 en la industria del cuidado infantil de Pennsylvania. En total, se han asignado $220 millones de dólares para apoyar a los proveedores de cuidado infantil en Pennsylvania.Antes de la crisis de COVID-19, en Pennsylvania operaban 7,017 proveedores de cuidado infantil habilitados. A fines de julio, más de 200 de esos proveedores habían indicado su intención de cerrar permanentemente sus puertas. La tercera ronda de financiación de CARES se distribuirá a 6,893 proveedores.El estudio de impacto analizó los costos financieros relativos a la crisis de COVID-19 para los proveedores de cuidado infantil, la posibilidad de cierres permanentes producto de la crisis y el nivel de inversión necesario para sostener la industria durante un período de transición de baja demanda y luego de que la crisis se haya atenuado. Los investigadores de Penn State sacaron conclusiones de encuestas detalladas distribuidas a cientos de proveedores de cuidado infantil en todo Pennsylvania y también de un número más pequeño de entrevistas personales a proveedores y trabajadores de cuidado infantil.El estudio de Penn State estima que aproximadamente 1,000 proveedores adicionales están en riesgo de cerrar si no cuentan con asistencia financiera para compensar los costos continuos que implican implementar las guías respecto de la COVID-19 y la reducción de las inscripciones. Las recomendaciones del estudio para guiar la distribución de unos $117 millones de dólares en fondos federales de la Ley CARES asignados al cuidado infantil.Además de los $116 millones de dólares en fondos de la Ley CARES disponibles en el presupuesto promulgado, el Departamento está redistribuyendo más de $1.7 millones de dólares de los fondos del financiamiento de la Ley CARES de Desarrollo de Cuidado Infantil de junio y julio en esta tercera ronda de pagos. Los rangos de las asignaciones de fondos para esta ronda de financiación son: Centros de cuidado de niños de categoría 2 (27-38 niños)420$11,800$4,908,800last_img read more

Ascot home’s humble start ends as an entertainer’s oasis

first_imgAlthough the couple have owned the house for two years they had to wait a year before they could move in while they carried out extensive renovations.And while that was a substantial job, Mrs McLennan said they were prepared to do it as she had recognised from the start just what the house could become. The house at 19 Upper Lancaster Rd, Ascot has multiple rooms suitable for use as offices.The suburb had also been a big drawcard for the family because it had a strong sense of community and was very close to the city.“It is such a great community, there are a lot of local clubs close by, you’ve got Ascot State School, Eagle Junction State School is also very good and not far away, there is a swim club at Ascot and it is close to beautiful Oriel Park.’’ The home sits on a 834sq m block of land and has a large void at the entrance which includes banks of glass. What was once a fairly basic brick and tile home is now an executive-style home in Ascot.What started out as a fairly basic brick house when they bought it two years ago has been transformed into a modern Ascot executive-style home by owners Rachelle and Ross McLennan.

It is just a nice place to read or play games with the kids.’’The house also multiple rooms suitable for use as offices, two upstairs and one on the lower level toward the entrance of the house.‘‘I also practice kinesiology so I have a treatment room at the front of the house so clients don’t have to come into the house, it is sort of right off the entrance, which is really convenient but anyone else buying the house could also use that as an office or to run a business.’’Mrs McLennan said.

Pat McKenzie steps in for 51-year head coach at D-III St. John’s

first_img Published on February 15, 2016 at 10:32 pm Contact Tomer: [email protected] | @tomer_langer Facebook Twitter Google+ Pat McKenzie’s family is ingrained in the history of St. John’s (Minnesota) University. The former point guard and current head coach played from 2000-04, his father, Pat, played at the school from 1975-79 and his younger brother, Kevin, played from 2010-14.The three of them played in completely different eras, but all ended up playing for the same head coach.Jim Smith became the head coach of the Johnnies in 1964. On March 17 of last year, Smith retired after spending 51 years on the job. He didn’t go into the season knowing that it would be his last.“All of a sudden the decision seemed right,” Smith said.Smith is the winningest coach in Minnesota college basketball history on any level. His 786 wins rank second all-time in Division III history and 14th in NCAA history among all divisions. He had the best winning percentage in school history among coaches who were around for at least 20 games.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSmith left his imprint on the university in more ways than one. He coached golf and cross country, among other sports, and even served two different stints as the athletic director. Now, McKenzie is tasked with replacing a man whose lasting legacy on the school spans over half a century.“I never once felt like he’s looking over my shoulder or I’m in his shadow,” McKenzie said. “If anything, I feel like he’s got his arm around my shoulder.”McKenzie, who was an assistant under Smith for the last nine years, said that there were nerves and anxious moments when he first took over. But as his young head coaching career has progressed, it’s become easier for him with the continued level of support from his former boss.Smith said that he would be there to help McKenzie whenever he needed it, but he stressed that he would try and remain as hands-off as possible.McKenzie was hired on April 15, just under a month after Smith’s retirement decision came. He felt cautiously optimistic that he would get the job after talking with people around the community.Still, he had to go through the full process of applying and interviewing with the committee that was formed to look for Smith’s replacement. One of the members on the committee was Mitchell Kuck, who was just finishing his junior year.The committee did its best to remain unbiased and to give a fair shot to every candidate, according to Kuck. But he also acknowledged that people in the community had a feeling that McKenzie was preparing to get the job for whenever his predecessor decided to retire.Kuck said that the players recognize that McKenzie is naturally more intense and serious than Smith was, though he credits that to Smith’s long tenure and McKenzie’s inexperience at the helm. But his favorite moment from this season broke the norm. After getting their first win of the season, McKenzie celebrated and shouted with the rest of his players in the locker room.“It was just a great memory for me, and it was something I’d never seen out of him before,” Kuck said.McKenzie conducts a few things differently now that Smith is gone. He focuses more on the players’ strength and conditioning and runs practice in a more structured manner.With the Johnnies entering a new phase in their programs history after 51 years of relative consistency, it’s up to McKenzie to find a way to continue the success.
