3 Schools to Experiment with Longer Day

Dismissal will wait until 6 p.m. at Clinton Avenue School beginning next fall — as kids attend extra science and math classes, not after-school sports or clubs. The city signed a letter of intent this week to partner with a not-for-profit group called Citizen Schools to launch an “expanded learning time program” at Clinton Avenue and two other schools. The program will stretch the school day by three to four hours for fifth and sixth-graders at Clinton Avenue, Wexler Grant and Bishop Woods schools next fall, and then for the schools’ seventh and eighth graders over the following two years.
