The SBAC's Extended Day Enrichment Program offers after-school supervision and a variety of enrichment activities for children in 6th through 8th grade. The program is non-profit and entirely fee-supported by those using its services.
Each day we provide a healthy snack followed by half an hour of homework time.
After homework time, students may participate in a variety of EDEP sponsored activities and clubs, as well as designing and participating in student-initiated activities.
EDEP is a great space for your teen to socialize in a supervised environment, get homework done, and participate in a wide range of stimulating enrichment activities.
We make every effort to work with parents and teachers alike to provide the mentorship and creative opportunities each student needs to be the best they can be, in the classroom and beyond.
Program hours are from school dismissal until 6:00 pm. Pickup location: Building #9, Rm 11.
Late fees will be charged beginning at 6:01pm at a rate of $15.00 per child for every 15 minutes you are late. Three late pick-ups will result in dismissal from the program.

EDEP provides a study hall space for homework each day unless there is a special event that prevents us from doing so. EDEP will remind each student of the importance of doing homework at EDEP. EDEP will not check backpacks; however we will check planners upon request. It is up to each parent to make sure that their child knows what is expected of them at homework time. Staff will supervise homework time, but they will not be able to tutor students or answer in depth questions. Students are expected to bring their own school supplies for homework time.
To register for the 2022-2023 school year, please click on the link above and fill out the request form. This does not guarantee a spot, it is simply a request. When a spot becomes available we will contact you with further instructions.Email Mrs. Ashley with any questions! Email address: mathewsar. All school board emails end in @gm.sbac.edu .
