Dedham Public Schools has revised plans for their new summer enrichment program, Eco-Explorers, now offering interested students greater schedule flexibility, lower pricing and extending registration to four neighboring towns. The program, which will shift from a full 4-week July program, will now be available on a weekly session basis, providing the ability to choose individual weeks, rather than commit to the full month of July. In addition to shifting Eco-Explorers to a weekly format, Dedham is also adjusting the pricing to align with current Avery Institute programming costs, making each weekly afternoon session now $80 per week. Students who register and refer a friend to join them at Eco-Explorers can also benefit from a 10% discount.
