Schools eye banning outside students from programs

Gloucester's School Department may formally close all after-school activities to "out-of-district" students — including those attending the Gloucester Community Arts Charter School — pending a Wednesday night School Committee's vote. The committee will vote on a change in the district's participation policy that, if approved, will block students who choose to leave Gloucester's city public schools from participating in any district extra curricular activities. In addition to the charter school, the policy would also bar participation in city school-run after-school programs to any students who attend St. Ann School, Eastern Point Day School or any other facilities.
