To participate in activities, students must comply with an Individual Academic and Character Development Plan. A key piece of effectiveness in improving student academic achievement is the creation of these individualized plans for every student that are made in partnership with Dream Center education staff and Dubuque Community Schools.
The Dream Center John Haupert Academic Center continues the school-day curriculum and teaching strategies. Ongoing communication and quarterly assessments are conducted to evaluate student progress.
Each student’s School Connector does weekly visits to the child’s classroom to determine areas of improvement, in partnership with the student’s teacher.
There are so many ways you can get involved in the life-changing work happening at the Dream Center starting with becoming an Academic Center Volunteer! The role of an Academic Center Volunteer consists of:
. assisting with homework,
. providing genuine support for our students, and
. building positive and consistent relationships.
