Jefferson County Public Schools in Kentucky will open three Student Learning Centers to offer students academic and social-emotional support, extracurricular and art offerings, tutoring and other after-school interventions. The Learning Centers will also offer opportunities for parent engagement and education. Centers are located in neighborhoods with the highest need and operate after school from 2:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The district noted these centers were created in response to needs that the community reported in a feedback survey.
We are spotlighting this because the concept of extending school services to include after-school supports for students in academic and non-academic areas in partnership with the larger community, along with services for adults, is worth watching.
