Community schools in Redmond are helping students do better in the classroom. That’s according to a report given to the Redmond School Board last week. Board Chair Jim Erickson says the before and after school programs are funded through grant money and seem to be helping students during regular school hours. “We took a look at the positive results with respect to testing scores. The increase in certain population groups of students who'd accessed those services and the data was really, really positive in terms of the success in meeting the needs of those particular students.” He says its been good for families too who take advantage of family night- parenting classes and financial planning courses. Hundreds of people in Redmond take advantage of the community schools. Erickson says some schools are open from 7:30 in the morning to 7 at night.
