M-SAFE - About the Program

  • Allegany County Public Schools M-SAFE (Middle School Students and Families Excelling) Extended Day Program addresses the problem of the academic achievement gap that exists between students in grade 6-8.  Community learning centers are located at Washington Middle School and Braddock Middle School will expand the academic opportunities for approximately 60 students in each school.  The goal of the program is to meet or exceed state standards for "proficient" as measured by the state assessments.  The objective is to increase performance in reading, math and science, and to promote family involvement in the Center's activities while providing instruction delivered by highly qualified teachers utilizing books, technology and materials which are different from what the student sees in the regular day.
