Will DCPS offer before and afterschool programming during the virtual learning period?
DCPS will not sponsor virtual before or afterschool programming while DCPS is in an all-virtual stance. Partners who typically provide before or afterschool programming are encouraged to collaborate with DCPS to provide in-person care for small groups of students during the school day, in alignment with DCPS and Department of Health guidelines, where students are able to engage in their virtual learning and enrichment opportunities. Partner programming that is offered in DCPS buildings will be free of charge to families. Partners funded independently from DCPS are able to provide virtual afterschool programming to families who choose to enroll.
