Saltonstall's extended day and year programming will continue next year,
It was not, however, without a debate, which the mayor described as divisive.
Some contend that the extended programming is costly. Others said the extended calendar gives Saltonstall an unfair advantage, especially during a time when some schools have been designated as at risk of slipping to or already at Level 4 status.
Supporters of Saltonstall's extended programming contend that the schol is succeeding and should be used as a model for the rest of the district.
