I am pleased to announce that the Kenneth B. Clark Academy (KCA) was the co-winner of January “ScoresUp” site of the month award sponsored by eCommEd. This is the first year that KCA business teacher, Mr. Gerald DeFabbia and his students have participated in the eCommEd program. The objective of the eCommEd program is to assist students in developing e-business concepts and personal skills that are essential for real success in the 21st century workplace.
Mr. DeFabbia and his students created a website that details the “life” of KCA. The website features the “Marching Cobras” and their recent trip to Maryland to participate in the annual Martin Luther King Parade. Other items included on the website are PBIS program information, curriculum information, sports pages, extracurricular activities and cottage life information. Please visit the webpage for full detail (http://www.scoresup.com/Kca/). “ScoresUp” staff observed that the website has “…well maintained pages…and had a great launch effort.”
I am extremely pleased that Mr. DeFabbia took the incentive to become part of the “ScoresUp” family. Our participation with “ScoresUp” will pay dividends for our students in that they will acquire some of the skills required to compete in the workplace. “ScoresUp” is one of the many programs offered by GNC UFSD to assist our students with the transition to adulthood.
