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.
This event is the AOC’s premier fundraiser supporting after-school and summer camp programs for Bristol Borough’s youth in grades K through 12th attending Bristol Borough’s public and parochial schools.
The highly-anticipated announcement of the AOC's 2020 PERSON OF THE YEAR and TEACHERS OF THE YEAR usually occurs at the annual JAZZ on the RIVER event in June. It will now take place at an undetermined future date and time
Catering and all beverages for the Bristol Fall Classic will be provided by the King George II Inn.
