This programming will provide students with engaging core content instruction, project-based and/or service-learning experiences, and opportunities for academic enrichment. In addition, the funded sites will serve as mentors, models, and resources for other programs across the Commonwealth. These programs will also engage with various community partners to support students' learning, as well social/emotional and physical development. Pending appropriation and meeting annual grant requirements, all grantees will be eligible for continuation funding in FY17 and FY18. The Promising Sites will also have continuation funding in FY19, and have a prorated amount for FY16 because their start dates will be January 2016 (all others will be September 2015).
