Ready – Set- Grow! VPK Summer Extension Program: This program is designed to increase the Kindergarten readiness rate of at-risk four year olds who need the benefit of high quality instruction. Some of these students will have participated in the school district’s highly accredited VPK. Others are part of non-school district centers.
The extended school year program gives teachers more time with these students to help them improve their print knowledge, phonemic awareness, and oral language. This project is supported by the John’s Island Community Service League, the Indian River Community Foundation, United Way of Indian River County and the School District Education Foundation Matching Grant Program. In addition, the John’s Island Foundation provided SMART table technology to advance our youngest learners.
