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.
