Extended Day Programs

  • Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is focused on preparing students to be productive citizens who are equipped with a broad set of skills to be globally competitive. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ Extended Day programs provide leadership and direction for academic programs during and outside of the school day so that students who are at risk will be successful through varied opportunities for academic support, enrichment and timely assistance.

    High school students (grades 9-12) who are not passing core subjects and other courses required for graduation will be encouraged to attend after-school tutorials and/or Saturday School. Many high schools also provide credit recovery to meet the students’ academic needs.

    The goal of extended day programs is to increase opportunities so all students can be successful and graduate with their cohort. Opportunities for credit recovery and repeating a course for credit are provided at each high school and offered through North Carolina Virtual Public Schools (NCVPS), Edgenuity, or a face-to-face instructional model. Every high school student is encouraged to take advantage of the many opportunities for academic success offered at his/her school.

    For this school year, middle school students (grades 6-8) who are at risk will be encouraged to attend the Extended Day Tutorial Program at their school.

    Elementary students performing at or at risk of performing below grade level will receive additional assistance through the use of an outside tutor or an Extended Day Tutorial Program at their school.

    Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ partnership with parents is to ensure academic success for all students. Parents are encouraged to take advantage of these exciting programs and the extra support they provide. If there are questions, parents can call their child’s school or the Office of Extended Day Programs at (980) 343-3854.
