New Bedford Public Schools

Two schools in the city of New Bedford that are considered “Level 4″ and targeted by the state for under-performance will be extending the school day for students.  The school are Hayden-McFadden and Parker elementary schools.

The longer schedule will go into effect at Hayden-McFadden in September, and will lengthen the day for the 700 students by half-an-hour Monday Through Thursday, with a 3 p.m. dismissal.  The Friday school day will be extended by 90 minutes, with dismissal changing from 1 p.m. until 2:30 p.m.

At the Parker School details of the longer day have not yet been completed.   Parker has an enrollment of 330 students.     

Other elementary schools in New Bedford will continue on last year’s schedule, but  new Superintendent Pia Durkin does not rule out changes to longer school days in the future.
