Extended Learning

The Extended Learning Section is responsible for overseeing two competitive federally funded afterschool programs at the state level. 

Afterschool programs provide a safe, caring, and nurturing place for extended learning, social, recreational, academic, and personal life skills development for students during non-school hours (before- and/or after-school). Afterschool programs foster partnerships among the schools, parents/families, and communities. Federal grant competitions are periodically available.
