The Success By 6 program, taught by Ms. Molly Schwab and Mrs. Lynn Kondoleon, was a big hit this year at Bascom Elementary. Thank you to the United Way of Mahoning County for funding this program! Children received three weeks of intensive instruction with daily breakfast and snacks. The program was concluded, on Friday August 2, with a luncheon where the children all received a special nutrition tracker and a backpack full of supplies for the upcoming school year.
LaBrae Local Schools does provide opportunities for families to have their child, where appropriate, to be given consideration for academic acceleration. Parents should read the District policy on acceleration. Parents can access the policy through the following link: LaBrae Board of Education Policies. Once you are redirected to the policies, click on the policy section 5000 Students. Find policy 5410: Promotion, Acceleration and Retention.
Additionally, parents should read the acceleration notice. Should a parent like to make a referral, the parent can print off the referral form located on the District website and submit it to the building principal for consideration.
