January 2017 saw the official launch of Phase II of the program, which installed an IEL facilitator in four focus schools. This shift allows for greater accountability in the schools, as well as providing the needed technical support. Our four facilitators, Shadrach, Gabriel, Joe, and Owen, are responsible for helping students and teachers learn the system. They manage the technology, help with record-keeping, provide classroom management support, and provide spiritual mentorship. In addition, the facilitators open up the computer lab for two hours each day after school and oversee that learning time for students who choose to participate. They will also run an eight-week summer school program. Our four facilitators have fully committed to their new roles and have been working diligently to implement the new system in their designated schools. We have full confidence that once the program is more fully utilized, the student's success rates will continue to climb at an even greater rate!
