ONLINE LEARNING PROGRAMS IN PLACE
The 2020/21 school year has begun for our students in D41 and CCSD89! We are coming off a successful virtual Summer Program and are feeling optimistic and excited to welcome our students back to GECRC for another school year. Programs begin September 14th.
Over the summer months, we’ve been out in the neighborhoods, talking with our students and their families. We’ve listened to their worries and hopes for their students’ educational experience this year. The changes demanded by COVID-19 have offered us a chance to think differently and with flexibility about how best to support our students. We are going to offer virtual programs, with continued outreach, to students from both D41 and CCSD89. Students from all ten D41 and CCSD89 schools were supported during our Summer Program. We plan to maintain contact with those students who need our support this fall, in addition to our students from our Churchill, Lincoln, Hadley and Glen Crest programs.
What's happening at GECRC
GECRC Expansion to Glen Crest Middle School
Glen Ellyn Children’s Resource Center (GECRC) and CCSD89 (D89) have partnered to open a new GECRC site in D89. Objectives are to enroll 40 low-income ELL (English Language Learner) middle school students, who are currently deemed at academic risk. Through participation in the GECRC after school tutoring and mentorship program, students will improve their academic skills, while finding the social and emotional support needed for academic readiness and success.Read full article >
