BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – A summer learning program at East Feliciana Public Schools has been named as one of Louisiana’s Models of Excellence by State Superintendent of Education Dr. Cade Brumly.
Brumley named EF Accelerate, a summer program through East Feliciana Public Schools, with the award on Friday, Oct. 8.
“EF Accelerate immersed students into the highest quality teaching and learning environments that targeted their specific academic and enrichment needs over the summer months,” State Superintendent of Education Dr. Cade Brumley said.
One-fourth of East Feliciana’s pre-K-12 students were enrolled in the summer learning program, according to an official press release.
“EF Accelerate was the first major initiative within our new strategic plan, so this recognition is the encouragement we needed to know we’re heading in the right direction,” East Feliciana Public Schools Superintendent Keisha Netterville said. It’s also given us a chance to reflect on what we accomplished during our summer program, and we’re proud of the intentionality and collaboration that informed every aspect of the program.”
East Feliciana made a commitment to address the unfinished learning as well as connecting with students, families, and the community when designing the summer learning program. The public school system partnered with 21st Century Schools and worked to make sure the program addressed the needs of all pre-K-12 students through small class sizes, high-quality curriculum, enrichment activities and field trips.
“I am so proud of the East Feliciana Public Schools’ commitment to providing its students an engaging academic experience that will allow them to start this school year on a strong note,” Brumley said.
