The Academic Oversight Committee (AOC) was established in 2010 by the Grundy Foundation, which serves as its fiscal monitor. The purpose of the AOC is to provide year-round programs at community learning centers focused on academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for students deemed at risk.
The AOC supports three (3) 21st Century Community Learning Centers established for Bristol Borough youth attending public and parochial schools, in grades K through 12, located at Snyder-Girotti Elementary School, St. Mark Parochial School and Bristol Jr/Sr High School. The programs offered help students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.
The Bristol Fall Classic, the AOC's premier fundraising event held annually since 2011, was canceled this year. Yet, the AOC's objective to raise awareness and funds to support after-school and summer camp programming for Bristol Borough youth remained just as great as ever! As a result, the No-Go Bristol Fall Classic Raffle was held cumulating in three (3) winning tickets drawn on December 8, 2020.
