After School Program Project Description page

r in the success of students in the after school program. In general terms, school personnel are expected to provide the information from which a student's Individual Academic Plan will be developed. Teachers also participate in a homework information loop, the purpose of which is to ensure that the supervised homework time is as productive as possible, perhaps including tutoring.

Because of the time involved in the set-up phase for the first project year, two report card periods will occur before the program begins operation. A flyer will be sent home with the first two report cards. The third "hit" will be a direct mailing to all middle school parents.

Extra effort will be made to recruit those students most in need of academic supplementation into the program. Teachers will discuss the academic opportunities available in the after school activities during the year's first parent-teacher conferences. In addition, teachers will make follow-up telephone calls to ensure that parents who want their children to participate get the chance. The goal is to recruit about 240 participants per middle school.
