My school has an extended school day and is about one hour longer than other schools in the district. We also have a two-hour optional after-school program, where one hour focuses on academics and the other focuses on social skills. We have three other application-based after-school programs that focus on college readiness. These programs and our other wraparound services have been pretty successful for our students. My school is classified as "extreme poverty". What I see is that many of my students have families who care deeply but lack the time, money, and in some cases skill to provide a lot of support for their kids at home. Their kids still need and deserve support at school. Schools don't exist so that we can have a job. Schools exist so that kids can learn. If they aren't learning, then what are we doing here?
