Collaborative Working Group

The collaborative working group will seek ways to support and coordinate existing after school and summer programs, design new collaborative programs, pool existing funding and resources, and look for new funding and resources in order to expand and improve extended learning opportunities for SFPS students.  The focus is on full-time programs that meet the childcare needs of families as well as the academic and social needs of the children.  The goals of the collaborative programs are to keep children safe and healthy during out of school time, to address academic achievement gaps through extended learning time, to prevent summer learning loss, to expose children to a variety of enrichment activities and experiences, and to instill in children a curiosity about the world and a love of learning.
