Lifewise Academy Coming to Newton in the Fall of 2021

Dear Newton School Community,
It is an honor for me to announce that the Newton School Community will have a chance to partner with Lifewise Academy in offering a Bible-based, character-focused Release Time Religious Instruction (RTRI) program for several of our elementary grade levels!  The Newton Board of Education approved going forward with this parental permission program at the January 2021 School Board meeting.  There are many details to be worked out for the specific Newton Lifewise Academy to launch (or begin) for students in the Fall of 2021.  
RTRI is a legal program by which religious instruction is accessible to public school students during the school day allowing them to leave school (with parental permission) to attend off-site classes which are both academic and religious in nature. This program will most likely be offered to Newton Grades 1 through 5 for school year 2021-2022 and will take place very near but off of school grounds.  
We will be giving parents more specific information as it becomes available. General information is provided below through a short video link and survey. Please access this link to learn more about Lifewise Academy and how you can be a partner in this program to make a difference for our kids!
