What day/time will the program be on?
For in class sessions currently we are shooting for Tues & Thursdays. Idea is that in class is from 1-4 on Tuesday at Merritt and Thursday 3-6 at Laney (still TBD), the rest of 14 hours the groups are expected to work on your own time. We are trying to get a feel for what might work best for the group, and are also working on having classrooms available for rest of the days for the groups to work together.
