Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Feedback has been great. A few North Park kids have told Murray the program has been great, while the school has received positive comments from the graduate students themselves.

And it is working. PASS has been operational for six weeks, but already 30 students have improved enough to be moved out of the program and into a monitoring status.

Eighth-grader Alex Ball is one of the North Park students working with a tutor. It’s been a positive relationship.

“It helps you stay organized and do your homework,” Ball said.
