George Long Elementary Participates in "Energizing Education - Jackson"
Initiated by a challenge match grant from Consumers Energy in 2012, Energizing Education was created to ensure all students achieve grade-level milestones in Jackson County through a three-pronged approach to literacy development. Volunteer tutors, supervised and guided by a literacy specialist, work with students (K-2) individually in reading, writing, and word work during school hours, working towards improved skills and a more positive attitude about reading. The Energizing Education initiative also supports after-school programs through training, consultation, and material support for staff and volunteers. Finally, family outreach activities held by Energizing Education encourage parents to take a more active role in supporting their children’s education, providing skills and materials they can use to encourage literacy in the home. A pilot of the program at Frost Elementary School ran from January-May 2013, and we are now in the process of implementing this program at George Long Elementary School.
