District Elementary Schools Gearing Up for After-School Programs

Nov. 12, 2007 – The St. Croix School District will begin implementation of Fall After-School Programs on Tuesday, Nov. 13, in cooperation with Learn-It Systems LLC, according to a press release from St. Croix District Superintendent of Schools Gary Molloy.
Molloy said, "The St. Croix School District is posed for the launch of its 2007-2008 Fall After-School Program, which will provide tutorial services in reading, math and writing skills, through utilizing the services of Learn-It Systems LLC. To be selected for the program students must be enrolled in grades two through eight and must have scored in the top 20 percent at the basic level of proficiency in the 2007 administration of the Virgin Islands Territorial Assessment of Learning (VITAL).
"This will be our second year implementing a district-wide intervention program toward providing a consistent curriculum in all our schools. Principals have reported seeing significant gains in those students who participated in the program previously as compared to those students who did not. Additionally, selected students will take part in the "Learn About My Island" component, which provides lessons in culture, historical sights and foods of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
"As a result of participation in the After-School Program, approximately 600 students will receive a total of 51 hours of additional instruction," said the St. Croix Superintendent. The 13-week After-School will be held twice weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays, for two (2) hours each day."
For more information on the program, contact Maria Encarnacion or Janine Schuster, deputy superintendents, at 773-1095.
