After the announcement of Neal Middle School’s new partnership with Citizen Schools yesterday, the new expanded day program was featured twice in The News & Observer, both online and in print. The Durham, NC middle school will begin their three-year partnership with Citizen Schools by lengthening the school day for about 270 sixth-graders for three hours, four days a week. During the expanded hours, students will receive academic support, including participation in language arts “academic league” aimed a raising proficiency in English Language Arts, and take apprenticeships.
