All four Carrollton City schools offer unique after-school enrichment/remediation programs that specifically target academically at-risk students. The seed money and much of current operating costs of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers are funded by a U.S. Department of Education initiative that supports the centers, which operate during out-of-school hours and that have three specific purposes: To provide opportunities for academic enrichment and tutorial services; to offer students a broad array of additional services, programs and activities to reinforce and complement the regular academic program; and to offer families of 21st CCLC students opportunities for literacy and related educational development.
Carrollton High School’s after-school/summer school program is called BRIDGE, an acronym for Building Resources that Increase the Desire to Graduate for Everyone. This program provides enrichment services to academically at-risk students with a focus on graduation.
The BRIDGE’s site coordinator is Krystal Kendall. Call the CHS main number to phone her: 770-834-7726.
