District Forms Out-of-School Time Taskforce

The District has formed an Out-of-School Time Taskforce and held its first meeting on Monday, Sept. 16.
 
Taskforce Charge Statement
 
The purpose of the taskforce is to create a more 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.
 
This work will include recommendations for: academic programs, enrichment and recreation opportunities, and childcare options.
 
Extensive research, best practices, and input from stakeholders will inform the work. The taskforce will be mindful of the school district and community education budgets and the economic impact to families. The group will seek consensus to make one or more recommendation(s) to the administration by December 2019. Team members are expected to talk about the work during their daily routines, and encourage the engagement, input and feedback of all stakeholders.
