This year, EISD will be introducing an after school program for students in grades 6-12. This program will be designed to allow students access to Internet resources, staff members, and other students for help in completing assignments. The program will begin in about 2 weeks. It will be located in the High School library and will run from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM Monday – Thursday.
In essence, the after school program will provide a place for students to work on school assignments outside the regular school day. There will be a certified teacher, an instructional aide, and up to three High School students available to offer assistance. However, this program is not just for students that may need help with homework. This program will provide students a place to just work on completing assignments. It will also provide access to all of the district’s technology resources.
Right now, the program is only open to students in grades 6-12. If successful, we are looking at the possibility of expanding the program to include younger students; however, if this happens, it would be at another campus. Also, transportation is not provided. Students and parents will have to provide their own way home.
More information will be furnished when the program is started. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
