What is Enrichment?
Enrichment opportunities are provided on a daily basis for students who have completed all their assignments for their classes and are not scheduled to receive intervention during our Morning Tutoring program.  These opportunities are designed to be flexible and incentivize positive academic behaviors.  Students can elect on a morning by morning basis whether or not to attend an enrichment group based on the academic criteria listed above and availability of the enrichment group.
