Currently, LECS offers afterschool enrichment through the After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program and our campus tutoring services.After-school enrichment and tutoring is a large component of the strategy developed to promote student improvement in specific areas.
The ASES Afterschool Program is currently available to any and all fourth – eight grade students who are currently enrolled at Lifeline Education Charter School. There is no cost to attend the ASES Afterschool Program. For information on enrollment, see the Coordinator at your school site.
The program begins on the first day of school and ends on the last day of school. Students attend the after-school program from 2:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily, except on Wednesdays when the program will run from 12:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Academic Enrichment: In addition to receiving tutorial opportunities by LECS classroom teachers, students who are enrolled in the ASES Program also receive supplemental instruction in one or more of the core academic subjects (reading/language arts, mathematics, history and social studies, or science). Each lesson is designed to reinforce previously introduced skills.
Project Based Enrichment: Students are exposed to teaching that active, collaborative, and meaning full through long-term group projects aimed at building self-esteem through cooperative groups. Each project is intended to offer students an opportunity to expand their knowledge on a specified topic through visual and performing arts. At the conclusion of each five to seven week thematic unit, students will have an opportunity to showcase their newly found skills to district officials, parents, guardians and community members through a school-wide student showcase.
Homework Assistance: Children will have an opportunity to start/complete assigned homework in accordance with LECS grade level guidelines on appropriate homework time increments. The after-school program does not guarantee that all homework will be completed.
Over the past four years, we have seen significant improvement in our students’ performance on state standardized testing including assessments administered through the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) and Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC). LECS administrators greatly contribute performance improvement to the many intensive intervention methods LECS currently employs.
LECS also partners with the following organizations to offer after-school enrichment to its students.
