Our kids are growing! By entering sixth grade, which is middle school for a majority of Akron Public Schools students, our Class of 2021 has graduated into the Akron I PROMISE Network (AIPN).
We've found that as kids enter middle school, the same interventions we use in the Wheels for Education program just aren't cool any more. The AIPN is specifically tailored to the needs of our middle, and eventually, high school students, with its own LeBron Advisory Board (comprised of secondary teachers, principals, and counselors), curriculum, and PROMISE.
Once a Wheels for Ed student graduates into the Akron I PROMISE Network, they remain there through graduation.
