The Issue:

Students across the nation are falling behind due to the school closures and disrupted education with COVID-19, and lower-income families are experiencing even more significant impacts due to lack of resources. During the past year, the majority of students attended virtual schooling, with minimal teacher guidance. Specifically, students in elementary and middle schools were more affected due to their young age and the ability to focus for extended hours. Younger-aged students are not as capable as high school students to self-learn and become independent thinkers. While these children need constant supervision, many low-income families are not able to give their time and attention to their children due to their priorities to support their families. In order to help these students achieve their dreams, we must foster the students and their education to prepare for their futures.

The Solution:

In order to help the underperforming students from low-income families, AARC will be launching its newest program, DreamEd. The objective of the DreamEd program is to provide free after-school supplemental education to first through eighth-grade students from low-income families. This program will help these students get them back on track for educational success. AARC will partner with Adaptively Education, the new EdTech arm of Best in Class Education Centers, which has been providing enrichment education for over 27 years. Adaptively will provide their digitized, proprietary Math and English curriculum for in-person or remote learning three (3) times a week. Through this innovative, yet easy-to-use technology and gamified curriculum, along with live, passionate teachers, students will receive the support they need to be successful in Math and English.
