Extended Day Information
The Extended Day Program is an extension of the regular school day designed to offer tutorial program, homework assistance, and enrichment programs for students and to meet after-school childcare needs of working parents. Extended Day Programs in all Tuscaloosa County elementary and participating middle schools operate from the time school is out (around 3 p.m.) until 5:45 p.m. five days a week through the school year, excluding holidays, teacher in-service or half days.
Extended Day Tuition and Fees
There is a $12.00 registration fee per child for either the afternoon/morning program. Tuition for the program is as follows:
$35.00 per week for one child
$60.00 per week for two children in the same family
$75.00 per week for three children in the same family
$90.00 per week for four children in the same family
$15.00 per week for each additional child in the same family, exceeding four
(No daily discounts are to be given. Discounts are only for students attending weekly.)
Tuition payments will be due every Friday for the coming week. Fees can also be paid in advance on a monthly basis. Program participants will not be allowed to carry an outstanding balance. Weekly tuition is not reduced based on frequency of attendance.
Afternoon daily tuition is $8.00 and the morning program tuition is $2.00 per child, payable in advance of day of stay. While this service is designed for families with children in need of everyday after-school supervision, occasional or infrequent stays are welcomed.
There will be a $10.00 late charge for every 5-minute period that any child is not picked up by 5:45 p.m. at the close of the program. The late charge is due on the date that the late pick up occurs.
