As previously communicated, beginning this summer Cedar Rapids Community School District is partnering with Champions for additional summer school programming options. Additionally, beginning in the fall of 2022, CRCSD will partner with Champions for before- and after-school extended learning programs in all of our elementary and middle school buildings across the district, including wrap-around services at Truman Early Childhood Center.

This partnership will provide students and families with equitable, accessible, and affordable options for care consistent throughout CRCSD. These expanded opportunities will mean all families and students can receive the services they need in the locations their child attends school.
