• Seeking Support for Summer Enrichment and Learning

    At Detroit Public Schools Community District, we have safely reopened schools because we know a variety of learning options and wraparound services are critical to support the academic, social and emotional growth of our students. In light of the significant disruption caused by COVID-19, we are expanding summer school, after school programs and Saturday programming.

    We are seeking local, community partners who can help provide recreation and academic support services to our students this summer. We know there are many strong community-based vendors that have a rich history of providing community services, and we want them to know the door is open to partner with DPSCD.
