After school program registration is Aug. 2 and 5

Coweta County School System’s After School Program will begin its fall registration at all elementary schools on Friday, Aug. 2, and Monday, Aug. 5, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

After School Program Site Coordinators will be available at each school to help with registration and answer any questions parents may have about the program. The registration fee is $20 and must be received with the enrollment form. The parent/ guardian registering a child in the After School Program will be responsible for all payments. Tuition for the Coweta County After School Program is $12 per day. However, tuition payments made by Friday prior to the week of attendance are only $9 per day reserved.

The After School Program is a service of the Coweta County School System available for children in Pre-K through the 5th grade at all of the county’s nineteen elementary schools. The hours of the program are from 2:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on days schools are in session. Children in the Coweta County School System grades PreK-5 that are able to meaningfully participate, may enroll in this program as long as they have been properly registered, tuition paid and abide by all school, Board of Education, and After School Program rules, policies, and procedures.

According to Alan Wood, Director of the After School Program, children will be provided with a safe and planned program offering structured homework time as well as activities related to play and artwork. In addition, afternoon snacks will be provided for the children each day and events will be planned during the year to highlight a number of seasonal traditions that children enjoy.

“We want parents to know that their children will be taken care of in an environment that provides meaningful development and confidence building opportunities,” said Wood. “This is our mission and focus. Our commitment is to provide children with responsive attentiveness in a value added program that compliments both the school and the home.”

Qualifications of After School Program care may include local school Site Coordinator efforts to make reasonable accommodations and to offer provisional enrollment to determine if a child initially enrolled can have meaningful participation in the program. Accommodations that would alter or place an undue burden on the After School Program may be an exception to this effort.
