Title I Extended Day Academic Program (EDAP) is a grant funded program that provides activities that enrich academic skills before and after the regular school day with innovative and motivating extensions of the school curriculum. An application for funding for the 2016-2017 school year was released in March 2016 and posted on this website for schools to apply for funding.

During the school year elementary schools, middle and high schools leveraged EDAP funding to engage students and protect students from after school dangers. Students in EDAP are engaged in interactive activities that integrate math, reading, writing and science with art, music, media, games and physical activity with Common Core State Standards.  Students who often have no supervision at home or need extra academic assistance, eagerly attend these clubs, learning with certified teachers and educational assistants within a safe environment. Surveys cite that students, parents, teachers and volunteers highly value the importance of the program.

At the beginning of each semester, students are recruited into EDAP clubs at each grant funded school site. Posters, fliers, announcements and information on school websites inform students and parents of the clubs that will be offered, when they will meet, and sign-up procedures.  Site administrators, teachers, students and parents work together to find programs that suit the individual needs of the students and enhance state academic standards. Students can join clubs during the school year as needed.

Impact and outcomes of the Title I Extended Day Academic Program include:

  • Increased after school and before school academic enriched activities,
  • Improved student behavior, motivation and achievement (from 2013 Year-End Survey results),
  • Improved services to students by providing extra time outside the regular school day and,
  • New and expanded student learning opportunities.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    1. Are the Extended Day Academic Program clubs taught by certified teachers?
      Yes. Highly qualified teachers conduct the clubs. Some teachers have educational assistants working with them as well.
    2. My child is tired of doing the same thing all day. Are the EDAP clubs different?
      The clubs often provide hands-on activities that combine math, reading and science with art, music, games and physical activity.
    3. Is attendance required?
      The EDAP activities are voluntary, but most students find themselves happily involved in learning, and enjoy the extra time after school, so they attend regularly.
    4. Will the activity leaders help my child with homework?
      The EDAP clubs are intended to provide extended learning activities, but not to help with homework. Many of the activities address the same skills, but homework is done at home or with assistance from other sources.
