Danville Church-Based Tutorial Program, Inc., 2020 CFDRR Competitive Grant Recipient
According to DCBTP: To combat the missed time in school due to COVID-19 and help students who need the most assistance, we provided a Summer Enrichment Program for Math and Reading, funded by CFDRR. This program, IXL Math & Reading, is all online. The math and reading component of this program is used to remediate and enrich students’ skills. Our consultants monitor student progress online. Students are rewarded for mastering eight objectives every two weeks.
“Boys & Girls Clubs of the Danville Area (BGCDA) would not have been able to purchase [the computers] without the reallocation. This reallocation has provided BGCDA to work with students from 7:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., currently running virtual school support for members in Danville and Pittsylvania County. Members always have a backup Chromebook or one to use to research. It has also allowed staff to work with members during the “afterschool” programming hours from 2:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. on key BGCDA programming areas.”
