After-School Exploration (ASE)

The District offers a 5-day/week After School Exploration (ASE) program at each of our schools for students in Grades K-8. Similar to the District's Summer Exploration Program ASE will provide students with an extended after-school experience from Monday to Friday that includes academic support, enrichment activities, and relationship building. 

Registration for After School Exploration (ASE) is now closed.  However, please contact your school's Out of School Time Manager (below) if you have any questions or would like to sign up for the wait list.
