Extra support to help NTPS Students POWER-UP!
North Thurston has received federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funding to support the increased learning needs of students resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Using a portion of these funds, NTPS has designed our POWER-UP! program to provide school-based supplemental learning opportunities before, during, and after-school. These federal dollars will be available to us for 3 years to help our students POWER-UP!
Now in its second year, POWER-UP! supports the increased learning needs of students resulting from the COVID Pandemic by providing additional direct instruction, remediation, and interventions for Pre-K through 12th grade students. By providing intentional additional instruction, we focus on re-engagement and building core academic skills in all content areas.
POWER-UP! would not be possible were it not for our dedicated NTPS staff. While our programs are still launching this year, last school year, 123 POWER-UP! staff in 22 schools supported 1415 NTPS students!
