Foundation Award - $625.74
Eleven teacher volunteers will be meeting weekly with financially challenged students to help them prepare for ACT standardized tests. Mr. Chris Peters in the Maine East Social Sciences Department is coordinating the project. The Foundation is happy to provide funds for teacher materials, CD-ROM, 32 sets of student materials and access to online practice tests.
The intent of this program is to improve the targeted juniors' confidence for the annual test. Additional benefits for the school's performance and students' access to college are also expected.
