In her report to the Marshall School Board meeting on Tuesday, September 21, Superintendent Dr. Carol Maher said the district would offer help to students who fall behind in their classwork. She said part of the money the district receives in ESSER (Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief) funds will be used to pay for after-school programs.
Dr Maher said the district will implement tutoring and credit recovery programs that will be available to all students.
Dr. Maher explained when after-school programs will be offered at each level.
Dr Maher said elementary-level classes will have no more than 12 students, but preferably between eight and 10. Each of the programs will have a principal. There will be four head teachers in each of the elementary buildings, and an after school secretary will be at Bueker Middle School.
It was explained that there is no limit to the number of credits high school students can earn. It will depend on how hard they want to work. The program will run until April 28, 2022.
