ASES provides a safe and engaging environment for its students. The program has an academic and enrichment focus based upon California academic content standards.
The program begins at the end of the regular school day 2:00pm, running until 6:00 pm and operates each day students are in session.
The program will:
- Maintain a student to staff ratio of 20:1
- Provide an academic and enrichment component.
- Monitor attendance to ensure student attendance meets a minimum of 15 hours per week for students in K-6 and 9 hours per week for students in grades 7-8.
- Maintain and submit expenditure and attendance reports as directed by the state.
As there is limited space at most of the sites, enrollment will be on a first come first serve basis . Families must be willing to make a commitment to meet a 15 hour per week requirement.
Families interested in enrolling their son/daughter in the program may sign up in the Wait List Binder located in the front office.
Students participating in the ASES program must follow the rules of the program. Each student will sign the “Student Rules,” as stated in the ASES Handbook, the first day of the program. Disruptive or disrespectful behavior to students and staff can lead to a student being removed from the program. The Coordinator for ASES will meet with students and parents/guardians prior to a student being removed from the program.
Cell Phones: Students may not have cell phones out and or on during ASES. If students need to contact parents, they will use the ASES phone. We ask that parents call the ASES phone should they need to reach their son/daughter.
Homework time is scheduled daily and assistance is provided based on student needs. The ASES staff will make every effort to assist students with the completion of homework but the ASES program does not guarantee that all homework will be completed. Parents/guardians are encouraged to discuss individual student needs with the ASES staff.
Per Board policy:
Kindergarten - homework assignments should stimulate students to talk often with a strong literacy component
Grades 1 – 3 - homework should be approximately 30 minutes
Grades 4 – 6 - homework should be approximately 1 hour
Grades 7 & 8 – homework should be approximately 1.5 hours
Early Release / Late Arrival
Under normal conditions, the check out process will begin after 5:30p.m., with the expectation that all students will be checked out no later than 6:00 p.m. There will be occasions when your child will need to be released early due to appointments and/or other family obligations. Parents must make contact with our site coordinator and officially check out your child. The ASES program will be considerate to your needs when they arise and ask that these situations be the exception rather than the rule.
There may be occasions when a student will need to arrive late due to special activities or events. Students will check into ASES upon arrival at the program.
Sports and religion classes: Students attending sports and religion classes will be expected to meet the 15 hour.
Enrollment for the following school year begins in May. If you would like information about enrollment, please call the ASES Office at 805-361-8218 or 805-361-8240.
