Sunrise Scholars & Afternoon Academy

Invitation Only! K-5th Grade

Sunrise Scholars and Afternoon Academy are a part of a districtwide initiative known as School Year Academic Acceleration (SYAA). This initiative was introduced as a response to addressing academic needs of students that may have been exacerbated by three unconventional school years.  Students invited to Sunrise Scholars or Afternoon Academy are those that have been identified as requiring an additional layer of support. These decisions are made by analyzing benchmark and progress monitoring data in math and ELA. Space in these groups is limited, thus participation is by invitation only. SYAA is not a punitive program nor is it an indicator that a student is failing, it is simply an effort to provide students with what they need to be as successful as possible. While this is a part of a district-wide initiative, the support we provide at Ross is tailored to the needs of our students.
