Extended Learning Time Grant Proposal Forums in Utica
The Utica City School District is offering town forums to discuss its proposed acceptance of the Extended Learning Time Grant.
Superintendent Bruce Karam spoke with WIBX this morning and said that the forums will take place at each of the five schools potentially affected by acceptance of the grant, which would mandate extension of the school day by approximately ninety minutes beginning with the 2015-2016 school year.
In order to ensure success of the program, Karam said that the district will not move forward unless a majority of all parties involved is on board with its implementation.
Karam's full interview on WIBX First News with Keeler in the Morning can be heard here or watched below:
