Jump Start Program
Every school year is filled with anxiety for both parents and students. Students starting a new school, either because they are moving from middle school to high school, or are moving to a new neighborhood, have the biggest adjustment, but even those who are just moving to a new grade have adjustments to make. New teachers, new friends, new academic challenges are only the beginning.
Under normal circumstances learning loss, also known as the “summer slide” usually results in declines in academic areas such as mathematics and reading. The additional out of the classroom period for distance learning due to the recent pandemic has exacerbated this problem. Our students are now facing what is being called the “COVID19 Slide.” VirtuEd’s Jumpstart Program can help counteract this!
The VirtuEd Jumpstart Program is a four session package that provides students and parents with one-on-one help and support as they move through the school year. The program includes one 30-minute session in each of the four disciplines below, giving students the jumpstart they need for a successful school year.
