(Delta, OH) A million-dollar investment in kids is coming to Fulton County. Panther Pack is a before-school and afterschool program targeting students who could benefit from extra educational instruction and behavioral needs.
The $1 million federal 21st Century grant will be doled out over a five-year period with a focus on increased family engagement in the Delta school district. Panther Pack will focus on strengthening literacy and math skills, along with positive youth development, similar to a program already running at Delta Middle School.
Student progress throughout the school year will be monitored via testing using licensed teachers and program assistants. Several community partners will be involved, including the local library and the health department.
