Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis Reopening Plans
BGCSTL serves nine school districts, all with very different reopening plans for the 1st school quarter (ending around mid-October). The focus for us has been to explore ways to ensure kids have a safe place, parents have support, and schools have a partner in the education of our communities. BGCSTL has pivoted to remain open, continue to serve students and families, and stand ready to help rebuild and return stronger than before COVID-19. Below are the four plans that we have considered:
We are still in conversations to finalize a few details, but as of today, August 31, 2020 operations have resumed at several locations and we are moving forward with plans to serve as learning coaches during the academic day and operate an after-school hours; operate with staff to student ratios 9 to 1 and discuss with the school district the maximum number of students per school building; continue our Green Team that is responsible for health screening, temperature checking and will work to keep cleaning and sanitizing of spaces used for both students and staff; and, have programs designed with social distancing.
Virtual Academic Support
(Remote/In-Person) Virtual learning can be challenging for students that lack support, good time management and discipline. Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis (BGCSTL) Professionals will serve as learning support coaches:
- Monitoring attendance and participation in Google/TEAMS Classrooms;
- Work collaboratively with teachers;
- Attend grade level/school meetings;
- Provide in-person academic support (as directed by teachers);
- Implement select BGCA youth development programs identified by school principal.
