Advisory Board Meeting
My main objective for our meeting in January was to share the final budget numbers for the 2014-2015 school year. To date, we do not have that information. I will be scheduling the next meeting this week (it will be in February). There are a number of things it looks like I am going to need assistance with.
We have started the New Year off on a great note!
SONYC (Schools Out New York City) Grant
I'm excited to say that we have been awarded a SONYC Grant for $495,000 over three years. This grant is to provide resources for a free, comprehensive after school program for students in Grades 6, 7 & 8. We are partnering with the community organization Grand Street Settlement to provide an excellent after school program.
What it means for parents is a free after school at St. Brigid for their middle school children. That's a cost savings of up to $1,800 per year for families. The program is scheduled to begin March 2nd.
An application is being submitted for a K-5 free After School Program (through COMPASS Grant) also in partnership with Grand Street Settlement.
