Troy: CAPCOM Gives New Coats to Pre-K Children

With the help of the Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO), CAPCOM Credit Union gave brand-new coats to pre-K students at Troy’s Public School 2 and 12. Lodges provided and delivered the coats to CEO sites. CAPCOM gave coats to CEO's Stepping Stones I center as well.

Troy Enlarged City School District is one of the Capital Region's largest school districts. Yet Troy is still a small urban district, with approximately 4,300 students and programs housed in nine buildings. Troy is rated in good standing, according to the State Education Department and No Child Left Behind.

Troy has achieved remarkable progress in recent years. School improvement efforts have not only raised expectations, but resulted in measurable changes across the district. The district’s public schools continue to serve as a vital part of the city of Troy’s revitalization.

The personalized nature of being a small city school district empowers students to excel in an environment that encourages and supports lifelong learning. The district has recently instituted a number of policies to elevate academic achievement.

The district is committed to teaching a curriculum that ensures all students meet the state learning standards. Each school provides a broad array of educational experiences and extracurricular opportunities that challenge students to achieve their maximum potential.

CEO’s programs are designed to be stepping stones to long-term success. They focus on education, skill building and connecting people to resources they need. Its goal is to break the cycle of poverty by targeting poverty at its root causes – removing barriers and supporting change.

CAPCOM is a member-owned financial institution based in the Capital Region.
