GO Fundamentals, is a tutoring program for GO Project K-8 students who have been identified as "promotion in doubt" by their public schools. (Promotion in Doubt means a student may need to repeat their current grade). GO Fundamentals provides the students with additional academic time on literacy development. By working with the students on a more individualized basis, we will give them more opportunities to master the reading and writing skills needed to be promoted to the next grade in June.
