In the case of an LAUSD teacher strike, EdBoost will be holding strike camp for students in grades K-5.
We will run camp from 8:00am-2:30pm, Monday-Friday, for as long as the strike persists.
Each day will include one hour of reading/language arts instruction, one hour of math instruction, and one hour of science/social studies instruction (our usual hands-on and interactive forms of science and social studies instruction). We will walk to the park for lunch and play time, and we'll fill the rest of our time with enrichment activities, including experiments and scientific observations, typing, programming, puzzles, games, art, and whatever our strike camp crew thinks is interesting. Think of Strike Camp as a cross between a school day and EdBoost summer camp -- plenty of academic rigor, but also a good amount of hands-on fun and experimentation.
Strike camp will be priced just like summer camp, at $350/week, though we will prorate the cost by day ($70/day) to account for the uncertainty of the situation. We do have scholarships available for anyone who needs financial assistance (please fill out the scholarship application to the right). We will also provide after-care, from 3-6, for an additional $30/day. If your child is enrolled in an afterschool program at Clover, Overland, or Palms, the afterschool program is running and accepting students who did not attend school that day, and we have at least 5 children from your school enrolled in strike camp, we will walk the children to their afterschool program at 2:30.
Children will need to bring snacks and lunches, but we will provide any other materials that they need (they may also bring school material if they have school work to do during the break).
We will be here at 8:00am on the first day of the strike, even if the strike is called in the middle of the night, so if a strike happens, you'll know exactly where to go.
If will be a new student, to be prepared for a sudden strike, please fill out the registration form (to the right) so that we have it on file.
Feel free to let us know if you have any questions!
