The Prince George’s County public schools system has launched a new program for classes on Saturdays, part of an effort to give students an edge in core subjects and improve test scores.
The 20-week program is open to students of all grades and academic strengths, as volunteer tutors and certified teachers will focus on all academic subjects, particularly math, WTOP reported.
The sessions will be held at High Point High School in Beltsville, beginning with a free breakfast at 8 a.m. and a motivational session at 8:30 a.m. The instructional program runs from 9 to 11 a.m.
Schools CEO Kevin Maxwell told WTOP the program was developed by the George B. Thomas Learning Academy in Bethesda and first implemented in Montgomery County.
