After School Education and Safety Program

The After-School Education and Safety Program (ASES) is the result of the 2002 voter-approved initiative, Proposition 49. The ASES Program funds the establishment of local After School Learning and Safe Neighborhood Partnerships Program. The goal of the program is to improve student performance in school and to provide a safe environment after school for students. The (ASP) operates every day that school is in session and only from school dismissal until 6:00 p.m. The ASES program is provided at no cost to the students of the participating school sites, (limited spaces). The goal of the Waterford Unified School District After School Program is to align and expand on the regular day curriculum by offering homework help, enrichment activities, and physical education. The Afterschool Program staff strives to meet the needs and goals of all of our students. Below are the requirements that need to be met in order to attend the ASES program:

  • Must be in 7th - 8th grade.

  • Must attend the school where the ASES program is located to enroll in the ASES program.

  • Must have a completed ASES application on file.

  • Students must attend daily from dismissal to 6:00 p.m if they are participating in the ASES Program.

healthy meals


Waterford Unified School District provides three full meals and a snack to our students. Breakfast is served to students arriving between 7:30 - 8:15 AM. Lunch is served during the school day. Supper is served upon dismissal at 2:30 PM before ASP students begin their Academic Power Hour. If students are still present at 5 PM, they will be offered a snack.

The Power Hour

After eating supper and before beginning any clubs or elective activities, students in ASP will attend the Academic Power Hour. During this time, students can finish any homework, or receive additional help to reinforce classroom lessons.


The After School Program is available for students who need after-school programming daily. Students are expected to attend every day. ASP is offered until 6 PM, please see our Early Release Policy regarding dismissal requirements.

Afterschool programs can support social, emotional, cognitive, and academic development, reduce risky behaviors, promote physical health, and provide a safe and supportive environment for children and youth.

After School Policies and Expectations

Early Release Policy:

It is critical that your child attend the program daily in order to fulfill the mandates of the grant and not risk being dropped from the program. Students should be picked up by 6:00 pm unless he/she has a parallel program or other commitment that prevents staying until dismissal time. Students may not be checked out prior to 4:00 pm. Students walking or riding a bike home will be released at least thirty (30) minutes prior to dark. An early release form must be completed and turned into the ASP prior to early release. 

Student/Parent Expectations:

Expectations in behavior will be consistent with the school day (please refer to the Parent Handbook). A maximum of three parent notification notes are allowed before a student will be dismissed from the program. If a student receives three parent notifications at any time during the program they will be dropped from the After School Program and become eligible to re-enroll for the following school year. 

Homework Policy:

Homework support is provided daily for one hour. During homework help, students will be encouraged to be independent and responsible for getting their work finished. If students do not finish their homework during homework support time they will be expected to finish the homework at home. It is not the responsibility of the staff to grade/check homework. The staff will assist the students as needed.
