Chancellor Fariña Announces Afterschool Reading Club Pilot

Read the press release about a new literacy enrichment pilot for elementary school students living in shelters.

Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña visited the Flushing Family Residence to announce the Afterschool Reading Club, a brand-new literacy enrichment pilot for elementary school students living in shelters.

This is the DOE’s first citywide literacy-focused after school effort in shelters, and the pilot reflects the Administration’s dedication to supporting the needs of students in temporary housing, and its commitment across all NYC’s public schools to strengthening early literacy instruction and engaging parents as partners in students’ education.
