On September 6, HHYD welcomed back the nearly 90 students who are enrolled in our Urban Learning Center program to date and we expect that number to increase over the next few weeks as school bus transportation issues are resolved. The students are excited about learning, and we have several new volunteer tutors who are assisting students with their homework.
The Summer Spot Results Are In
We’ve analyzed the data from our Summer Spot pre and post tests to assess academic progress for the 118 students that were in the program, and they showed an 11% improvement in reading and a 16% improvement in math over the 8 week period. We are so proud of our youth for a job well done!
