Ribbon cut on Academic Learning Centers in Cheektowaga

A ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday evening marked the official opening of the Academic Learning Centers created by the Cheektowaga-Sloan Union Free School District in the John F. Kennedy Middle and High Schools.

The centers, conceived last year by the district, are serving more than 100 students daily during and after school. School Superintendent Andrea L. Galenski noted that students can receive individual help with classwork, get assistance with projects and tutor their classmates.

“The ALC has had a significant impact on our high school students,” ALC teacher Kelsey Miosi said. “ ... whether it be because they are struggling in math, looking to improve their SAT scores or taking one of our online courses.”
