SMART Academy Saturday Morning Academic Reading Time

Students at Title I elementary schools participate in Saturday Morning Academic Reading Time Academy (SMART). SMART Academy is designed and provided for students in grades 4th – 6th who scored at the level 2 on the Smarter Balanced Assessment in English Language Arts.  Instruction is focused on academic vocabulary development and students practice the effective use of technology, stimulating inquiry and access to a well-rounded education.  Students participate in 3 hour sessions for seven consecutive Saturdays

 

Parent workshops are held to encourage parents to “take the lead” in their child’s education.  An overview of the grade level standards and expectations are provided as well as ideas on how to balance family activities to support student achievement.

 

A culminating activity to a local educational institution is provided to contribute to students’ well-rounded learning experiences.
