USD 250 values a safe and enriched environment for students during out of school time. After school care is offered by the district as a resource to help meet the diverse needs of USD 250 families. This programming further enhances the use of district staff and facility resources.
Programming for After School Care (ASC) will be the responsibility of the ASC Coordinator. Site level operations will be managed by the ASC Coordinator with Site Coordinators located in each elementary building. A staff to student ratio of 1:10 will be maintained.
USD 250 will make available after school care at designated USD 250 elementary schools on each day that school is in session during the school term. After school care will not be available during school vacations, teacher in-service, or early dismissal days. After school care will be available between the hours of 3:15 and 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday on regular school days. Every effort will be made to accommodate and coordinate resources to meet the diverse needs of all district students.
Parents will designate individuals as emergency contact and authorize pick up. The ASC program will not release students by telephone request. Parents or authorized adults are required to sign the child out before the child is released. This procedure will enable the After School Care staff to ensure the safety of all its clients. Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis with the Site Coordinator.
Students enrolled in ASC will follow the same rules of behavior that are enforced during the regular school day at each respective school. Misbehavior will result in one verbal warning/Time-out. Continued behavioral issues will be referred to the Coordinator and may result in dismissal from the program.
The ASC program is not a “drop-in” service. In the event of an emergency, ora n unforeseen situation, the ASC staff will provide care for your child. The rate charged will be that of the standard contracted fee of $4.00. It is imperative that the Site Coordinator have emergency information for all students who are in their care. For this reason, we encourage all parents to complete the ASC enrollment form to have on file in the event of an unforeseen circumstance. Staff is scheduled base don number of students attending per day, keeping a staff to student ratio of 1:10. Parents who habitually make use of ASC as a drop-in service will be required to enroll their child and agree to a contracted Schedule.
