Coordinator of After School Programs.pdf
Summary Staff is recommending the addition of a Classified Coordinator of After School Programs to be added to the After School Program Administrative team. This addition is due in large part to the continued growth since 1999 of the CARES After School Program with currently 16 K-12 sites. Upon inception of this program, there were only six after school sites K-6. Staff has researched and compared other district staffing structures and feel the addition of the classified position would provide the essential stability the department needs to ensure continued growth, quality and program development. The Classified Coordinator position would provide the essential support and supervision of the sub-contract Para-professional program staff which make up 225+ staff across the district from two recreation partners. Consistency in professional development, staff expectation and high quality program implementation is invaluable. Having a district staff person to ensure this is the norm and that programs are visited on a weekly basis is needed. After School is a challenging department with a combination of academic, recreation and enrichment needs and a diversified staff (Credentialed and Para-professionals) that need consistent supervision, training and coaching. Communication and collaboration among these recreation and community partners is an essential component to the program's success and sustainability.
Funding N/A
Fiscal Impact All costs to be paid out of the After School Grant.
