School District of Beloit to offer free after-school programming options

Print Article

BELOIT - The School District of Beloit will be offering free after-school programing to any child age 6 to 14 who is living in the school district, even if they do not attend any of the district schools.

On Sept. 10, the board of education voted unanimously to fund after-school programs for one year.

After-school programming is offered at Converse, Gaston, Hackett, Merrill Elementary as well as Aldrich and Cunningham intermediate schools, according to a School District of Beloit press release.

Parents and guardians will be responsible for providing transportation to and from the after-school program. For more information, or to enroll in the after-school program, parents are advised to contact the school of their choice directly.

The programming is being funded through a Community Service Fund 80. The one-year offering of the program costs the district $350,000.

A Fund 80 allows the district to tax above current revenue limits. Unlike other operational costs, reimbursed to the school district by the state at about 75%, local property taxpayers would foot the entire bill and none of the amount the district spends on Fund 80 activities would be reimbursed.

To meet the Fund 80 requirement for community programming, the after-school programming will be open to all children residing within the school district's taxing boundaries regardless of their enrollment status in the School District of Beloit.
