The B.E.A.C.O.N (Building Essential Assets through Community and Outreach Networking) Afterschool Program mission is to: Empower students to discover their innate ability to succeed! The purpose of the BEACON Afterschool Program is to close the achievement gap by providing academic support and social guidance to at-risk struggling students.
In 2005, Grand County School District established the BEACON Afterschool Program as a result of a spike in teen suicides and a subsequent community needs assessment that showed alarming social trends and academic dysfunction. Since 2005, BEACON has expanded and grown into a comprehensive support program offering a variety of academic assistance, core-curriculum based opportunities, enrichment activities for hands-on learning, and healthy afterschool environment to help students meet local and state academic standards.
BEACON successfully serves 650 students and their families each year at three school sites: Helen M. Knight Elementary (K-6), Moab Charter School (K-6), and Grand County Middle School (7-8). BEACON strives to improve the ability for Grand County students to achieve academic and social success, and in so doing, improve the health of the greater Moab Community!
