What is an LEC?

A Learning Extension Center (LEC) is an official Columbus City Schools endorsed safe work-space for students to have educational support through internet access, supervision, and social-distancing.

Who Can Be Part of This?

We will be open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays serving Elementary-age students from 1-3pm and Middle + High School-age students from 5-8pm. Any CCS student can apply, and space will be limited to 10 students during those windows.

What Safety Precautions Will Be Taken?

The LEC @ SCC will maintain social distancing as well as all CDC approved cleaning processes. Masks are required for all participants. All volunteers serving at the LEC must be background checked, trained, and in good public health.

Students, volunteers and staff with any of the following conditions will be required to not attend the LEC:

  •  Temperature 100°F or higher in the previous 24 hours. Persistent cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. Loss of taste or smell, body aches, headache, sore throat, runny nose or congestion.
  • Have you been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a medical professional or a local public health official?
  • Have you been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days?

Will the Volunteers be Trained Tutors?

No. Volunteers will not be trained tutors or teachers, but they will all be trained in the procedures for assisting students as well as the processes by which students are to contact their teachers/school representatives for academic-related help.

What Are the Pickup + Dropoff Policies?

Each student needs to be picked up by their parent, guardian, or approved-driver. Students with their own transportation (car, bike, walking) will need to have their parent or guardian approve of their method. Should a late pick-up occur more than once, your child will be removed from the LEC. At the time of pick-up, children will be brought outside to their parents; parents will not be permitted to enter the building upon pick-up. Every student’s parent or guardian will decide on a pickup + dropoff plan during the registration process with one of the church staff or volunteer coordinators.
