21st Century Learning Community Grant

WHAT: We are pleased to announce an after school program for our students beginning October 1, 2018. This program is made possible by a grant from the Oklahoma State Department of Education.

3:05 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. After School Tutoring & Activities (Monday – Thursday)
FCB A-3 After School Program will offer tutoring and homework help that will assist students in meeting state and local performance standards in core academic subjects. The program will also offer opportunities for academic enrichment activities that will include reading, writing, verbal communication, problem solving, and decision-making. During activity time students will play board games, participate in physical activities, enrichment activities, attend and participate in presentations by community partners, and take field trips to local educational and cultural attractions. These structured activities will correlate to school curriculum, enable students to learn new things, and provide opportunities for students to practice knowledge gained. If regular school is cancelled for any circumstance, A-3 After School will be cancelled also. If your child won’t be attending A-3 on a particular day(s) or there is a change of transportation plans for the day please send a note with your child in the morning. If we do not receive a note or phone call we will assume your child is attending on the days they are signed up and following their transportation plan.
Discipline Plan – Participants are expected to follow the rules of their student handbook and other site specific rules. In order to maintain a safe and fun environment, staff will work closely with parents and participants to ensure proper behavior. In the event of a disciplinary problem, the director will speak with the student. When two disciplinary problems have occurred, a conference or phone call with the student, parent, and project directors will occur. If the third disciplinary problem occurs, the student will be suspended for days, weeks, or permanently, depending on the severity of the behavior. Physical aggression against other participants or staff or running away from program activities may result in immediate suspension after the first incident. Participants will forfeit their space from the program for the following reasons: excessive absences, behavior that threatens physical or emotional safety of self or others, or breaking any school rules that are deemed worthy of termination. All decisions of the program director are final.
* We require you to have your student attend a minimum of 2 days per week. Simply put, evidence exists that shows positive gains for students who attend programs like this at least 60 days in a school year.
We take the responsibility of your child’s safety seriously. The following policies are for the safety and well-being of all of our students.
If regular school is cancelled for any circumstance, A-3 After School will be cancelled also. If your child won’t be attending A-3 on a particular day(s) or there is a change of transportation plans for the day please send a note with your child in the morning. If we do not receive a note or phone call we will assume your child is attending on the days they are signed up.
