Extended Learning Time: St. Mary’s Charter School

“Wrap-around services”–before, after, and summer school programs–help allay concerns for parents with heavy work schedules and transportation constraints. Teachers staff the wrap-around services because they see the results in the classroom. Students receive homework help or targeted tutoring, followed by enrichment activities. “So many students stay after school and come during the summer, even the ones that do not have to,” a teacher noted. Funded initially through a 21st Century grant, the administration pieces together small grants and Title I monies to sustain these essential programs. Read the transcript of Extended Learning Time. Return to the general introduction to St. Mary’s Charter School.
