Through your generosity and support, we were able to complete GOT IT (Saturday School) successfully. GOT IT (Saturday School) was able to support numerous seniors and graduating juniors through multiple effective educational programs. First, GOT IT provided food and instruction to twenty-five seniors as they earned their required CPR credit for graduation. GOT IT then provided three Saturdays of instruction and food to students in grades 9-12 with emphasis on students in grades eleventh and twelfth. Due to the additional academic support, GOT IT provided to graduating juniors and seniors, Northside High School graduated 135 students on Friday, May 18, 2021. We hope to extend educational services as well as develop other educational programs in the 2021-2022 school year due to the success of the academic programs in the 2020-2021 school year.
During the 2020-2021 school year, $940.97 was spent on funding academic programs, which still gives us over $2,100.00 to spend on the educational programs for the 2021-2022 school year. Our goal is to continue providing students with academic support to ensure they have the skills necessary to: obtain basic or above on the end-of-course assessment, pass each core class with a 70% or better, and graduate from high school on time. GOT IT will work on planning for the upcoming school year once we have identified the academic needs of the students in grades 11th and 12th. Again, thank you for your support as we continue to develop a community that is educational resourceful, supportive, and strong for all.
