Identifying and responding to COVID-19 in schools


What is the Martha's Vineyard School Testing Program?

The Martha's Vineyard School Testing Program, TestEd, is the collaboration of Martha's Vineyard Bank Charitable Foundation and MV Youth coming together with Martha's Vineyard Public Schools to help keep our Island children, teachers, and administrators safer at school.

TestEd is now underway, using pool-based PCR (Polyamerase Chain Reaction) tests that are completed at home, and Martha's Vineyard Bank Charitable Foundation is the fiscal agent for the program. TestEd is one of the first and most comprehensive COVID-19 primary/secondary school testing programs in the State with the goal of taking proactive measures to identify and respond to COVID-19 in the school community.

"We are proud to support a school testing program designed to enable the education of our children in these difficult times."

James M. Anthony Martha's Vineyard Bank President & CEO

"Please accept our thanks for helping us with this project - it is making a huge difference to our students, families, staff, and many others."

"I am grateful to Martha's Vineyard Bank for donating funds to help the school system cover the cost of testing staff and students to help keep our community safe and our schools open."
