Boys & Girls Clubs after school program gets $1.4M
Tia Pearson takes a break from preparing her classroom for Thursday’s first day of classes at Fair Street to log in to the school’s system with her KUMO mobile tablet. The device has become the new textbook for students who are able to read, study, test and learn. Teachers are able to monitor a student’s work in real time and interact with the student as well to help correct errors.
Fair Street International Baccalaureate World School Principal William Campbell has a lot to be excited about this school year. This is the first time Fair Street has begun the school year at its new location, which is one of the most technologically capable in the district, and it’s the first time it will be able to expand its enrichment and after-school programs thanks to a federal grant awarded to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hall County. The $1.4 million 21st Century Community Learning Center grant will be awarded to the Boys & Girls Clubs each year for the next three years.
