Site Based Elementary School Aftercare Programs
Please note that not all schools may be able to open their aftercare programs on the first day of school. In an effort to be as transparent and realistic as possible, staffing is the number one barrier for opening programs and adding students. There is also no way to know when qualified applicants will apply to work in these programs so BGCSL will NOT be able to give specific information as to when programs will open or when specific children will be moved off of the waitlist. If your child’s application is still currently waitlisted, it is possible that they may be accepted in the program at some point in the school year.
Please also keep in mind all providers have to follow California Department of Education's instructions around student to staff ratios and safety (20:1 for 1st-5th, and 10:1 for TK/K ). There are also requirements from CDE for all Expanded Learning Programs statewide regarding how to prioritize enrollment. BGCSL must adhere to certain priorities according to the grant. The following is a list of the priority order should there be a space available.
- 1st: Students who are low income, foster, homeless, refugee or asylum seekers and newcomers. The District has supplied BGCSL with a list of students who meet these grant qualifications.
- 2nd: Students of SLZUSD Employees
- 3rd: Date of Registration
- 4th: Lottery (if a tiebreaker is necessary)
