Because we have many children falling between the cracks since they did not learn how to read at an early stage and were not exposed to an enriched language and age-appropriate curriculum, it is evident that a new leveled-up learning center will help offset some of the deficits that students have as they enter the traditional school setting.  

As a new startup program, our proposed project will serve populations in Greenville, Mississippi.  Both states need to offer more for our children and families through the use of the buildings and personnel resources beyond the regular school day and year that will help teach the whole child.  We can do this by coordinating the limited available community resources in this proposal. In the Delta, there is a district that provides services for appropriately 6,200 students. Minimal opportunity for economic development is possible in this rural area. Many students arrive at school with special needs, emotional concerns, and financial problems. The school communities have little access to recreational and cultural opportunities. The Boys and Girls Club, Scout troops, local churches, and the public library provide the only source of youth service outside of school-based events. With the skating rink being destroyed, the movie theater and bowling alley are the children’s only outlet. In addition, there is no public transportation to these places in that community. A new start of the art learning center is needed to ensure that students are ready to compete in today's society.

With financial support, we will provide students with extended learning opportunities sufficient to eliminate academic and social gaps. Without appropriate interventions, the long-standing paradigms of poverty and illiteracy may never be broken by many of our children who carry on the tradition of low performance and failure in school. Research confirms that poverty contributes to the academic failure of children because poor families often cannot afford educational resources or participate in school-related activities. The county has one of the state’s lowest total assessed values in available tax revenue. Local control is truly a “cruel illusion” for officials and citizens who are concerned about the education of the school children they serve. If a county has a relatively low total assessed property value and very little business activity, that county has, in effect, a stone wall beyond which it cannot go in attempting to fund its educational system regardless of its needs. Project staff will use a variety of instructional strategies to assist youth in meeting grade-level benchmarks and to facilitate each individual’s acquisition of learning strategies needed to ensure accelerated academic achievement. Instructional strategies and learning objectives will be aligned to the Frameworks and College and Career Readiness Standards that addresses both Early Learning Skills and grade level expectations.

By helping raise money to begin this start up a learning center, students will have opportunities to acquire and practice technology skills and engage in a variety of enrichment activities that apply basic skills to real-life situations.
