Columbus City Schools is kicking off the new year with a reimagined learning opportunity for our PreK-12 students and families - Pathway Express. Starting January 8th, and continuing every weekend leading up to the 2022 Summer Experience, families are invited to join the District in unique learning and exploration experiences in our Columbus community.
Each month, Pathway Express will transport families to a different family-friendly destination where they’ll participate in hands-on academic activities that directly align with our vision for student success. Students will also receive take-home learning kits designed to stimulate their minds and make learning fun.
In addition to academic resources, the District is also teaming up with community partners to offer family support services, and partners will be on-site every second Saturday each month.
