"6 to 6" Program Pre-Enrollment Deadline Set for 2004-2005 School Year
Applications Due May 7, 2004

SAN DIEGO - The City of San Diego, in collaboration with San Diego City Schools and local community-based provider agencies, today began the pre-enrollment application process for admission to San Diego's "6 to 6" Extended School Day Program for the 2004-2005 school year. Families interested in utilizing San Diego's "6 to 6" before and after school enrichment program are encouraged to review the application letter, complete a pre-enrollment application form and return it by mail to the designated provider agency by May 7, 2004.

The forms are available for viewing and downloading on the City's web site at www.sandiego.gov/6to6/index.shtml (or from their respective schools).

The City of San Diego's Community and Economic Development Department, in partnership with area school districts, is committed to opening community schools before and after normal school hours to provide a safe place where elementary and middle school-aged children and youth can receive academic assistance and tutoring, and participate in recreational activities such as arts, crafts, and sports while their parents are at work.

San Diego's "6 to 6" Extended School Day Program serves all public elementary and middle school sites within the City limits, as well as some private schools. Funded by the City of San Diego and with various state and federal grants, the program serves 25,000 kids out of a total of 136,000 enrolled in City schools.

For general information on the "6 to 6" Extended School Day Program, contact the City's Community and Economic Development Department at (619) 236-6312.
