All students should have access to a well-rounded, rigorous and engaging academic program at every stop on their road to graduation.
CforC works with school leaders to identify needs and invest in people and programs that engage students and prepare them for academic success. We have invested in the Envision @Eastern program and Eastern's Health & Medical Sciences Academy and countless efforts to support students. Across the community, our priorities include:
Literacy & Reading. From supporting the Drop Everything and Read (D.E.A.R.) program at Eastern and buying books for classroom libraries to supporting reading tutors and mentors for struggling readers, we help ensure more students become strong readers.
S.T.E.M. From rocketry to computer programming to environmental sciences, we work to expose students to S.T.E.M. careers and ensure students learn the skills needed to succeed in those fields. We are leading the development of a middle school intervention effort designed to improve Math scores and prepare students for success in Algebra.
Music & the Arts. Building upon the rich musical legacy at Eastern, CforC is leading to expand opportunities for youth to receive a rich musical education and increased opportunities in the arts.
Envision @Eastern. For many reasons, students struggle to remain on the path to graduation. CforC helps ensure that students who fall behind receive the support
they need to get back on track.
