The Give Every Child A Chance (GECAC) in partnership with Lindbergh Education Center is offering a Computer Assisted Instructional Tutoring (CAIT) program.  

CAIT is one of many programs GECAC is offering to the community this summer.  

Applications for CAIT were sent out to all the schools in the Manteca, Banta, Escalon, and Ripon Unified school districts and the response was overwhelming. All of the 60 available spots were filled by students.

CAIT is a computer based instructional summer program offered to students who will be entering 5th-8th grade this upcoming school year.  All of the sessions are conducted in small groups (10 per session) meeting twice a week at the Lindberg Adult School.  For a 6-week period, students attend either Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday for 50 minutes each day of computer based instruction. The students receive instruction in basic reading, math, and language arts skills. The program the students are working on is Success Maker.  

Success Maker tracks the students’ progress and advances them throughout the 6 week period. CAIT will be in session from June 8th until July 2nd.
