Extended School Day

The American Federation of School Administrators believes that its locals and members must participate fully in the design, authorization, implementation, evaluation, and continuation of programs that extend the school day, school year, create alternative calendars and/or implement year-round school programs. The implementation of such programs must take into consideration salaries, collective bargaining agreements, due process, and established workplace rules and regulations. Furthermore, the impact of such programs upon the unique character of each community must also be taken into consideration. All such program should be designed with the end goal to improve public education and not for fiscal purposes.
