Meeting on DCPS Extended Learning Day

On Thursday, May 8th, DCAYA hosted a conversation/working meeting of more than 80 members and allies about DCPS’ new initiative to extend the school day. This extended school day model, planned to begin in Fall 2008, will seek to formalize and coordinate out-of-school-time programs between the hours of approximately 3:30-6:30pm. DCPS’ goal is to provide all youth in DCPS with out-of-school-time programming – beginning in Fall 2008. Representatives from 40 community organizations and foundations received an update on the initiative, and asked questions of Dr. Ximena Hartsock the DCPS Deputy Chief for Differentiated Instruction.
