DE Looking To Add After School Programs


The Statewide Afterschool Initiative Learning Task Force, or SAIL, headed by House Majority Leader Valerie Longhurst is looking for ways to get afterschool programs to all Delaware students. In 2014, SAIL found that more than 48,000 students would have participated in afterschool programs if they were available. Afterschool programs will help bridge the gap between school and home now that both parents work in almost every home. The task force asked for the reinstatement of funding for extended learning programs that stopped in 2009 after the historic budget shortfall.
