The Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity (METCO) was created 41 years ago by urban and suburban educational collaborators who believed that all children should have access to quality education in suburban school districts. The Sudbury K-8 system enrolled its first students on January 27, 1975, when forty students were placed in the five Sudbury Elementary Schools. Currently, this grant-funded program supports seventy students annually. Students completing grade 8, and any other student(s) leaving the Sudbury METCO Program, are replaced with the number of new elementary students needed to maintain the set number of 70 for the next fiscal year.Students from Boston participate in a variety of activities. For example, all elementary students participate in a before- or after-school academic enrichment program called, MAST (METCO Academic Support Team). Middle school students take advantage of the scheduled after school program held twice weekly at ECMS. Sudbury METCO parent meetings are held at METCO Inc. in Boston approximately once a month and provide Boston parents with an opportunity to discuss issues that are relevant to their children's academic progress and social well being. Periodically, members of the Sudbury educational staff and/or School Committee, join the METCO Director in hosting parent meetings in Boston.
