Extended School Day / School Violence Prevention Programs

Aug 3 2016

The Syracuse City School District is one of 83 districts out of 450 applicants funded by the NYS Education Department for Extended School Day / School Violence Prevention programs. One of the criteria for receiving this competitive award is recognition of A&O as a highly qualified evaluator.  The programs will be implemented at Meachem and Webster Elementary Schools. “It’s a simple proposition – when students are safe and engaged in productive afterschool activities, they’re going to enjoy school more and do better,” said State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia. “The grants we’re awarding go a long way towards protecting and enriching our children.”
