Crow­der said Mid­dle Ridge of­fers a variety of ser­vices for low in­come stu­dents and their fam­i­lies.

Mid­dle Ridge stu­dents can eat free and re­duced break­fast as well as lunch, and the school pro­vides af­ter school care on a slid­ing scale fee ac­cord­ing to in­come.

Be­cause the school failed to meet AYP for the 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 school years, they had to of­fer sup­ple­men­tal ser­vices for stu­dents in the sub­ject ar­eas of read­ing and math.

“The tu­tor can even come to their home if they don’t have trans­porta­tion,” Crow­der said.

She said the ap­pli­ca­tion process to re­ceive the sup­ple­men­tal ser­vices is quick and easy for par­ents.

Over­head pro­jec­tors linked with com­put­ers at Mid­dle Ridge also al­low stu­dents, who oth­er­wise would not be able to af­ford it, to go on vir­tual field trips.
