Academic Enrichment Program
The Comer AEP program through the Gholston Trust seeks to assist families by providing services for students above and beyond the regular school programs. A variety of programs are available for kindergarten through 5th grade students. Kindergarten students are eligible beginning the fall they begin kindergarten. 5th grade students are eligible for summer enrichment the year they finish 5th grade. This program is available for students in the Comer attendance zone or who attend Comer Elementary.
During the school year funds are available for academic tutoring through the Comer Elementary After School Program. Tutoring for 3rd through 5th grade is provided two days a week beginning in October and running through March. There is a limited number of spaces available and students must be recommended for the tutoring by their teacher. Once a student is approved the parent then registers the student for the After School Program and pays the $10.00 registration fee. The AEP funds pay the After School fee of $6.00 for tutoring days only. This covers the cost of After School, tutoring, and a snack. Once approved and registered, the student is expected to stay in the After School Program and for tutoring if present at school that day. If a student comes to the After School Program but does not stay for tutoring then the parent is responsible for the $6.00 charge. There are a limited number of spaces and students are expected to have regular attendance at school and tutoring to remain eligible for the program.
During the summer months, the program provides funds for summer enrichment programs such as athletic and academic camps. Funds are limited to $200 per student per year and space is limited. Applications will be accepted for the summer enrichment program beginning February 15th. No applications will be accepted after May 10th.
Students are eligible for either Academic Tutoring or Summer Enrichment. Students may not participate in both programs during the year.
- Funds are awarded to the program, not paid to individuals
