5/29/2018 Rep. Casimiro bill to create ‘Out of School Time Learning Commission’ passes House
STATE HOUSE – Rep. Julie A. Casimiro’s (D-Dist. 31, North Kingstown, Exeter) legislation (2018-H 7413A) that creates a 13-member commission to make recommendations to improve and increase the number of quality out-of-school and learning programs in the state passed the House of Representatives tonight.

“The evidence is overwhelmingly clear that learning and development of our students should not be limited to just school hours and I am looking forward to bringing this discussion to Rhode Island,” said Representative Casimiro.

The bill creates a commission to improve and increase the number of quality out of school time learning programs in the state.  The 13-member commission would be comprised of three members of the House of Representatives and various educational and afterschool program representatives. 

“This commission will work with all afterschool programs across Rhode Island to ensure that we are meeting the highest standards in afterschool learning and preparing our young people for the very best start in life as possible,” added Representative Casimiro.
