After school program
George Peabody Elemetary School - Richmond District After School Collaborative (ExCEL Program)
|About the program||
RDASC's mission is to improve the quality of life in its community by providing youth and their families with affordable afterschool environments that are safe, fun, art enriching, academically enhancing and culturally relevant. Students are expected to attend the Richmond District Afterschool Collaborative program at Peabody Monday through Friday from 2:40pm-5:45pm. It is important to note that if your child is absent from the program for 5 days in one month, he or she may be asked to leave the program. A typical week includes free and homework time, art, recreation, community building and Friday field trips. SFUSD ExCEL afterschool programs ensure involvement of teachers from students' schools to make sure that afterschool academics are aligned with the school day curriculum. Every school with an ExCEL program partners with a nonprofit community based organization to run activities and build bridges to the neighborhood.Applications for the 2013-14 program are due April 26, 2013. Although consideration is given to families who submit applications by the deadline, the program does not admit students on a first come, first served basis. Kindergarten students are admitted on a three week trial period to determine if they are able to adjust to the long day. The Richmond District Afterschool Collaborative works to balance gender and grade levels, and consider academic and financial need. They also work with the site administrator to identify and assist families who have particular needs. Complete information and application are available on their website.

ExCEL Summer Program
|About the program||
Each program has an academic, enrichment and physical activity component. The programs are based on a youth development model and include project based learning activities. The summer programs are operated by community based organizations that are contracted by SFUSD to provide the services based on grants to the school from California Department of Education. Each organization has a site specific enrollment process. Priority enrollment goes to the students from the school site. Students from other SFUSD schools are eligible to apply though in many of the elementary schools there is more demand than available slots. Funding changes year to year and program offerings change. Contact the school for details. This program may take place off site.
