ECU to implement lab to help low-performing students

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Help is on the way for low-performing students in Pitt County.

East Carolina University is one of eight UNC-system universities implementing a lab to help students in certain subjects like math and reading.

The idea was established after the North Carolina General Assembly passed a law requiring the Board of Governors to establish something to help low-performing students.

ECU’s partnerships and enrollment director Laura Bilbro-berry said the goal is to get students the best education possible.

“Exploring some options for a full day program, it could be an extended day or after school or an extended year,” Bilbro-Berry said. “This…will follow the schedule of the regular school day, and we will have teachers and a principal in the school.”

The lab will not begin until the 2017-2018 school year.
