STREET

ACADEMY

Street Academy is an education enhancement program that provides academic enrichment, increased social/behavioral

skills, and cultural enrichment for targeted male students of Jefferson County Public Schools. Street Academy instruction

emphasizes a direct reading curriculum model with literacy enhancements. Additionally, students will engage with martial

arts and chess professionals to increase discipline and self-resiliency skills. Lastly, there is a parental involvement

requirement with this program that consists of scheduled parent workshops throughout the school year.

WHO

Males 4th and 5th who attend designated schools within the Louisville’s Zones of Hope neighborhoods.

WHY

“Black children are performing at alarmingly low achievement levels, and sustain a frightening dropout rate” according to

the No Child Left Behind studies. As a group, black boys have higher rates of behavioral problems, higher rates of

absenteeism, and lower levels of academic achievement than others. Street Academy addresses this problem directly, with

a highly structured, culturally sensitive curriculum.

WHERE

This school-based program is currently offered at four Jefferson County Public School Elementary Schools- Byck,

Rangeland, Roosevelt- Perry and Wheatley Elementary. Transportation is provided and free to those students residing

within zip codes 40203, 40208, 40210, 40211 & 40212

August 29; September 5; September 10;

September 19, and September 26

Now a global bestseller, the

remarkable life of Rigoberta Menchú,

a Guatemalan peasant woman,

reflects on the experiences common

to many Indian communities in Latin

America. Menchú suffered gross

injustice and hardship in her early

life: her brother, father and mother

were murdered by the Guatemalan

military. She learned Spanish and

turned to catechistic work as an

expression of political revolt as well

as religious commitment. Menchú

vividly conveys the traditional beliefs

of her community and her personal

response to feminist and socialist

ideas. Above all, these pages are

illuminated by the enduring courage

and passionate sense of justice of an

extraordinary woman.

Book Study location will vary

Book study will be from 4-5 pm

Between the World and Me is Ta-Nehisi Coates’s attempt to

answer these questions in a letter to his adolescent son.

Coates shares with his son—and readers—the story of his

awakening to the truth about his place in the world through a

series of revelatory experiences, from Howard University to

Civil War battlefields, from the South Side of Chicago to Paris,

from his childhood home to the living rooms of mothers whose

children’s lives were taken as American plunder. Beautifully

woven from personal narrative, reimagined history, and fresh,

emotionally charged reportage, Between the World and Me

clearly illuminates the past, bracingly confronts our present,

and offers a transcendent vision for a way forward.
