Saginaw school district officials plan to relocate the SUCCESS Academy from the Saginaw Career Complex to the Ricker Center in Buena Vista Township in July and expand it.
Superintendent Ramont Roberts says the Academy helps struggling middle and high school students catch up on their credits. He explained students learn on-line in a smaller class setting with teacher support to boost their grades so they can ultimately graduate. Roberts added the students also get counseling to improve their social skills so they can succeed not only in school, but also in life.
The change comes as Delta College plans to move out of the Ricker Center and open its new satellite campus in downtown Saginaw later this month.
