21st Century (6-12)
The Grenada School District offers year-round afterschool skills and tutoring classes to students in 6th through 12th grade, thanks to funding by the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant. The program also extends literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.
Classes are divided into skills and tutoring options, and students may attend after school until 5:30 on Mondays and Wednesdays. Summer classes are 8-12 Monday through Friday for most of June.
Tutoring classes are held at the middle or high schools, depending on the student’s grade.
Skills classes are held at the Grenada Career and Technical Center. The skills classes include:
- Welding and Brazing — Learn beginner and specialized welding techniques.
