Delmont School is listed as academically failing. I have just been asked to take part in the project o turn the school around. The school is 99% free and reduced lunch, predominantly African-American, and located in a poor neighborhood. Students score in the mid 20s on state tests in core subjects. Having worked in similar school in the East Baton Rouge district, I can surmise that the students have a hard time fousing and concentrating due to dysfunctional family life. I am looking for donations to bring simple physical fitness matierials into the classroom as these children need frequent opportunities to move and release tension. Brain research confirms the value of movement in improving short term memory, long term memory, and overall brain function.
