    Do you need help completing assignments? Do you need a structured place to do homework? Then consider EXTENDS.

    Introducing Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School's EXTENDS (EXtra Time Educating to meet the Needs of Diman Students) Program.

    In an effort to improve student performance and MCAS test results, Diman has established an after school homework support program open to all students. Certified teachers will be available for guided support in all content areas. Students may attend for extra help or for a controlled environment in which to complete homework.

    • Students will be able to attend sessions on an "as needed" basis but will be required to sign up in the Administration office by lunch time of the day they want to attend.
    • Bus transportation will be available for students utilizing the homework support program. Students MUST sign up for the bus in the morning of the day they plan to stay
    • All attending students must stay the entire hour.
    • This program does NOT replace teacher help days posted in all classrooms. It is an additional opportunity for help or support.

    EXTENDS Program is federally funded through the Special Education and Title One Allocation Grants.
