***Hello Edison students and families***

We wanted to provide students and families with a brief follow up on what to expect from our TRIO Educational Talent Search (ETS) team in these uncertain times, as well as keep all of our TRIO ETS scholars and families informed moving forward if they are in need of support:


1. TRIO ETS Advisors are fully available to support ETS scholars via email Mon-Fri 7:30am-3:00pm. Please reach out via email but advisors can schedule phone calls or video calls if additional support is needed:


2. TRIO ETS scholars should be checking their school (and personal) email daily if wifi is accessible. 


3. TRIO ETS grade-specific workshops are postponed until we are back in the schools. At this point we are not planning to move our workshop lessons to an online platform. 


4. All remaining field trips with TRIO ETS are canceled for the 2019-2020 school year including college visits and the mentoring program visit to St. Olaf College. 


As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns you may have. 


Stay safe and healthy,


TRIO ETS advisors Beka and David


ST. OLAF TRIO EDUCATIONAL TALENT SEARCH (ETS) is a college preparatory program funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s TRIO Programs with St. Olaf College sponsorship. The goal of ETS is to increase the likelihood that participants learn about careers, college and financial aid, complete high school and gain admission to and ultimately graduate from postsecondary programs.

ETS staff work in cooperation with school counselors and teachers to identify qualified youth who have the potential for educational success at the postsecondary level. St. Olaf ETS is an early intervention program that annually serves 700 participants from the following target schools in Minneapolis and St. Paul
