Dear AAK Families –
On Tuesday, March 9th, AAK’s Board of Directors voted to approve the Enhanced School Year model for the 2021-2022 school year. We are excited to be able to increase our robust learning experiences for students by offering a more sustained instructional year. Our Enhanced School Year will allow us to mitigate both the “summer slide” and “Covid slide” that we have seen in our students, while also preventing burnout for staff and students. We will be finalizing the calendar this next week and will send it out.
In tandem with the Enhanced School Year Model, AAK will be offering optional programming during all out of school days (excluding holidays). The cost for the program is listed below. We are currently seeking grant funding in order to offset the entire amount and make it free for all families, but we will not know until early fall if we are awarded those grants. The amount for this program will not exceed the amounts listed below.
- $0 for families qualifying for free lunch
- $100/year for families qualifying for reduced lunch
- $200/year for families that do not qualify for free/reduced lunch
This program will run on all out of school days from 7:00am-5:30pm and will offer additional enrichment opportunities aligned to the vision/mission and school’s program at AAK. We are in the process of finalizing various community partnerships to help augment this program. We will have an outline of what this programming will look like available this summer. We will continue to offer free before and after school programming for all families on school days.
- Please call the school at 970-226-2800 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a tour.
