Center Grove schools will use $60,000 to create a one-week program to help students catch up or work ahead during fall break.
The school district is getting the money from the Center Grove Education Foundation to help fund the REACH program. That program will include a weeklong remediation and enrichment camp for elementary school students, helping prepare them for the IREAD-3 and ISTEP exams they take each spring, a news release said.
Students who are behind in core subjects or who are not reading at grade level will be able to receive personalized remediation. Students also will be able to take classes so they can work ahead in art, technology and foreign language courses, the news release said.
The foundation has been raising funds for REACH since the fall 2012, the news release said.
“It was truly a community effort to be able to make a donation of this size to such an exciting program,” executive director Carla Johnson said in the release.
