ECRA embraces the concept that students must be healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged. In an effort to educate the whole child, ECRA provides:
♦ A healthy approach to diet and exercise through the federally-supported breakfast and lunch programs, health and nutrition education, physical education classes and team sports
♦ A setting which engages students through academic, extra-curricular and service opportunities.
♦ A “safety net” of social and emotional learning interlaced with support and services that prepare students to learn about, and address, personal and social challenges of our community; and
♦ Pre-collegiate expectations that serve as a baseline challenge to every student to pursue a college education.
