RACINE — A partnership between Cops ‘N Kids Reading Center and Racine Unified School District offers the opportunity for students to participate in extended learning enrichment.
Students can gain access to free tutors if they are between three years of age and the 6th grade. Additional learning services are available for children who are between the ages of two and four years old through the Margaret Drysdale Reading Program.
With the help of a dedicated staff of retired and current teachers, they are able to provide quality education and assistance to those in need of services. The extended learning programs provide a safe and positive environment to advance student skills.
Sign your child up to attend and gain extra help outside the classroom by completing a new student enrollment form. Find it on their website or download it below.
