Hartford Public Schools Announces 2015 Extended School Hours Grants

The Hartford Public Schools awarded approximately $374,000 in December 2014 to 10 community-based organizations through the 2014-2015 Extended School Hours Grant Program. The competitive grants will serve approximately 950 students during non-instructional hours at 14 schools.  

Extended School Hours Programs provide opportunities for academic improvement, including instructional services to help students meet state and local performance standards. They are also offer a range of activities designed to spark students’ imaginations and promote self-discovery through educational enrichment, arts, recreation, socialization, cultural enrichment, service learning, character education, and leadership development activities.

“Extended School Hour programs serve as integral partners in our district’s quest to provide every student with a high quality educational experience,” said Superintendent Beth Schiavino-Narvaez. “Students are often as likely to discover their talents and their true calling in an Extended School Hours program, as they are in a classroom.”  

Extended School Hours grants are funded by the Connecticut Department of Education and awarded by Hartford Public Schools through a competitive Request for Proposals (RFP) process that began in September.

A review committee of eight specialists in the areas of education, youth development and community stakeholders evaluated the proposals and made the awards in accordance with criteria approved by the Commissioner of Education and outlined in the RFP.    

Award decisions were based on the district’s priorities, school needs and the quality of the applications and programs. Extended School Day program grants last from January 2, 2015 through June 30, 2015.
