After-School Program

Spring Forward Learning Center (SFLC) will serve over 500 students at four elementary schools and two junior high programs during the 2017-18 academic school year. Our purpose is to provide children with a safe, positive learning environment where they receive literacy instruction, homework help, and nourishment (snack and evening meal). SFLC sites include Frances Willard, Rock Island Academy, Thomas Jefferson and Center for Math and Science Elementary Schools and Edison and Washington Junior Highs.

Our programs continue to evolve thanks to the support of our community, which includes Rock Island-Milan District’s staff, our Board and dozens of community partners.
To ensure that we are reaching the students who are most in need, SFLC Staff works with teachers to identify students who best benefit from additional academic instruction. Once enrolled, staff customize a learning plan to meet individuals’ learning needs. In alignment with school district and community goals, Spring Forward targets enrollment for first through third grades with the objective of having all students read by third grade.
