Empowering Parents to Make the Most of
Every Minute of their Child’s School Day
Across Newark NJ, students are in school longer, as a result of the
extended school day approach adopted by Newark Public Schools.
Some students also participate in additional after school programs, where space is available.
But what is the purpose of keeping our children in school longer, and how can that time best be utilized?
What opportunities can be added with the longer school day.
