Title 1 and 31A Extended Day Programs
Extended Day Programs are offered at all of our buildings to meet the needs of our students that are most at-risk of failing to meet high academic standards.
At the elementary schools, children are taught in small group settings by certified teaching staff in the core academic areas. Program schedules are specific to each building, but are typically held for approximately a half hour to an hour a couple days per week. These elementary programs are funded by Title 1. Parents are encouraged to contact the building principal or the Title 1 teacher for program information and to see if their child is eligible to participate.
After school programs are also offered at Roosevelt Middle School (grades 6 & 7) and Oak Park Preparatory Academy (grades 8 & 9). This supplemental support in the core academic areas is provided to students who have been identified for assistance based on classroom grades and/or MEAP scores. These small group sessions, taught by our own certified teaching staff are also funded by Title 1. Contact the individual building for more details.
After school assistance funded by 31A grant funds is offered at Oak Park High School two days per week. Students qualify based on MEAP scores and eligibility requirements of the grant. Instruction in core academic subjects is provided by highly qualified teaching staff.
