In recent years school dropout rates have climbed at an alarming rate. Statistics show that statewide nearly 9,500 kids dropped out of school before graduation last year. This staggering statistic of Louisiana's dropouts is more than a problem - it has become a state crisis. This issue is not only a problem in larger cities but has also hit close to home. There are students in our community who are in need of further assistance in order to reach their "highest potential". Our program is designed to meet each student's individual needs in order to maximize their learning opportunities and performance as well as involve parents as an equal partner in their child's daily achievement.
This program is designed to create learning opportunities for our children in succeeding towards mastering the Commom Core exams. Our first objective is to train, tutor, and prepare all of our students for testing.
The program will provide educational instruments and mentoring from qualified educators. Empowering the Community for Excellence will offer free tutoring and remediation services for low income, at-risk students in grades 1-5.
"The future depends on what we do in the present."
