Extended School Year Funding - Seeks Parents Input

K-6 Plus and JumpStart Program Update: 2/19/2020

After careful consideration and planning, Española Public Schools has decided to apply for extended school year funding for several school sites for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year.   If funding is approved, the K-6 PLUS initiative will provide an additional 25 days of student instruction school wide at proposed sites.  s Niños Kindergarten Center, San Juan, and Tony E Quintana elementary school sites.  This would adjust the first day of school for all students attending these school sites to July 6.  This will be a school wide initiative at approved sites.  All students will be required to attend school and attend regularly, beginning July 6.

Further, if Extended School Year funding is approved, the JumpStart initiative will provide an additional 10 days of student instruction for incoming 7th and 9th grade students at Carlos F. Vigil and Espanola Valley High School.   This would adjust the first day of school for all 7th and 9th grade students attending these school sites to July 27.  This will be a school wide initiative. All students will be required to attend school and attend regularly, beginning July 27.

Espanola Public Schools is committed to offering high quality programs for students and the community.  We are also committed to communicating openly with parents, families and staff.   We have established an Extended Learning Program teacher committee, we have surveyed staff, and we have held several community forums to explain the program and solicit parent and community input.   

We have also sent home a parent information and survey form that we are asking parents to review and return.   We are also re-surveying staff district-wide.   We invite you to review the information sent home, included below and return your survey to offer input.
