Department of Extended Learning Time, Afterschool, and Services (DELTAS)

Beginning in year three of PSS (2008-2009 school year), the BPS Department of Extended Learning Time, Afterschool, and Services (DELTAS) will assume a more central operational role in PSS. Currently, DELTAS – the department within BPS that is charged with removing barriers to learning and overseeing the School Department’s OST involvement – supports 50 OST sites, collectively referred to as the Triumph Collaborative.

This network is comprised of several initiatives (including the ten current PSS sites) that pursue common outcomes and are built upon a similar infrastructure. DELTAS will lead the effort to roll out a comprehensive technical assistance and coaching strategy for the ten PSS schools and the other 40 OST sites in year three. Boston Beyond will retain overall leadership of PSS and will focus its attention on multiple systemic efforts, including resource development, supporting the creation of common outcomes for OST, Indiana Home Inspection systemic data collection and analysis, and advocacy.
