Community School Investigators (CSI)
The C.S.I. program began as a pilot project
in the summer of 2005 to reduce summer learning loss among inner city,
elementary school students.
The goal of the program is to engage
children at risk for summer learning loss in learning and enrichment
opportunities that will help improve their educational outcomes. It also
provides the opportunity to enhance employment skills of local youths hired to
assist with the program. Students spend
6 weeks engaged in theme related learning activities that involve field trips
to the Children’s Museum, the Planetarium and University of Winnipeg among other places. They also have classroom experiences that
include science, math, language arts and social studies. The arts are also a big part of the
children’s experience. They may be involved in African drumming, jazz dance,
Aboriginal art and culture.
A staff of 10 are hired to teach the
children and run the program. They included 5 university students as teachers, 4 local high school students
as assistants, as well as 1 John M. King
As a cross between summer day camp and
summer school, the children have a fun, busy and wonderful educational
experience. There is no cost for this
