Background: The Administration is requesting authorization to enter into contracts with nine community-based organizations to provide comprehensive summer learning programs for forty-seven elementary, middle and high-school 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CLCs) and Safe Place summer after-school programs. These vendors will be used to facilitate academic and recreation enrichment programming to an estimated 8,000 youth throughout the City of Milwaukee.

Summer after-school programs provide opportunities for youth to be engaged and safe throughout the summer. The collaboration among MPS Extended Learning Opportunities, School Nutrition Services, and Milwaukee-area community-based organizations exposes youth to academic supports and engaging enrichment activities needed throughout the summer months. Participating students are provided healthy and nutritious meals on a daily basis.

After-school programs at June Summer Academy locations will provide youth with extended-day programming beginning June 3, 2019. June Summer Academy sites will receive an additional $5,000 per location to supplement program operations.

These contracts are funded by a combination of District Extension funds and Wisconsin Shares funding.

Each of the contracts will run from June 1, 2019, through August 23, 2019. The total amount of the contracts will not exceed $1,665,000.
