Chesapeake Union Exempted Village School District’s PEAKE project is a “before and after-school” learning program that is an extension of the regular school day consisting of 15 hours per week. The “Before School” learning center consists of a five-hour program, Monday through Friday. It will be staffed with a certified/licensed tutor whose main objectives are to help students complete homework for the day, study for tests, carry out planned intervention, practice targeted skills, or provide a quiet atmosphere for independent reading. All students during this time must be under the supervision of the tutor and must not be allowed to roam the hallways. No transportation is provided for this session. However, working parents can bring their child/ren to school where they will have a supervised, safe-learning environment until the regular school day begins. The “After School” learning center consists of a ten-hour, Monday through Thursday, program. The 2 ½ hour daily program begins with PEAKE students receiving a healthy snack and short break. Then students will be sent to the grade-level learning centers. During the next two hours students are required to attend a homework/ intervention learning block and may if homework and/or intervention is completed, participate (as time permits) in one or two activities of their choice each evening. All students are entitled to one activity per evening. The centers will be staffed with certified/licensed tutors whose main objectives are to help students complete homework for the next day, study for tests, carry out planned intervention, practice targeted skills, or provide a quiet atmosphere for independent reading. There may be occasions when students are scheduled for special activities during the homework hour, in which cases, the site-coordinator will inform the center tutors of those activities and provide the names of the students attending. During the next time block, those same students will complete their homework and/or intervention work.
