In preparation for the new school start-end times beginning Fall 2020, the school district is recruiting stakeholders to form a taskforce to create a robust menu of out-of-school time options to meet the overall health, academic and social/developmental needs of all K-5 students and families. The taskforce will develop recommendations for out of school time including academic programs, enrichment and recreation opportunities, and childcare options.
