Cheese Johnson will monitor these students’ progress as they advance towards graduation. At the same time he will grow the UJUMP Program by adding a new team of students each school year.
The initial phase of this pilot project starts in the 2021-22 academic year. It will include 24 fifth and sixth grade students from four local schools. The schools involved in the first year pilot program include: Andover Central Middle School, Brooks Middle School, Gordon Parks Academy, Prairie Creek Elementary School and Wichita Collegiate School. Students will come from different socioeconomic levels and selected by the school administration as students at the “crossroads.”
