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.
Held annually since 2011, the Bristol Fall Classic is the Academic Oversight Committee's (AOC) premier fundraising event. Since the onset of the covid-19 pandemic, the AOC has had to revise its methods to raise awareness and funds that support after-school and summer camp programming for Bristol Borough youth. As a result, the AOC hosted the 2020 No-Go Bristol Fall Classic Raffle and raised $25,000!
The need for this kind of fundraising is just as important now as ever! These funds ensure students attending Bristol Borough public and parochial schools have access to additional educational resources and enrichment programs. Therefore, the No-Go Bristol Fall Classic Raffle will be held again this year.
The AOC hopes you recognize the value being provided to the students in Bristol Borough and purchase a No-Go Raffle Ticket.
