Dearborn Public Schools is surveying parents who may need assistance with childcare when early release Tuesdays start in October. English and Arabic versions of the survey are available for parents with students in grades kindergarten to eighth grade.
The district is still developing plans for how to assist parents on the days when students get out 90 minutes early.
Two options are currently being considered – a Kids Club style child care for $11 per student per early release or a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) option for $15 to $20 per student for each Tuesday.
The district is not able to provide free childcare when class is not in session.
Schools will use information from the parent survey to develop plans for how to assist families.
The first early release will be Oct. 10.
