Rochester After-School Plan Report and Appendices
In June 2008, then Rochester Mayor Robert Duffy, then Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard of the Rochester City School District, and after-school advocates met to discuss the creation of an after-school task force. It was agreed that the task force would work with expert facilitators in after-school system building. The Community Foundation made a grant to The After-School Corporation (TASC) in New York City to facilitate the meetings of the task force to help develop a plan to address the after-school needs of every student in the Rochester City School District.
The result was the Rochester After-School Plan, which included a series of recommendations and two program models: one for after-school programs serving elementary school students and a second for after-school programs serving secondary school students.
