extended day/school age services

After-school hours provide students with an extra opportunity to engage in hands-on learning, interact with their peers, work under the care and supervision of supportive mentors, build on lessons learned during the school day and more. Approximately 17,000 elementary and middle school children participate in before and after school programs on OCPS campuses. Daily activities include homework time, supervised free play, organized games, art, drama, crafts, music and a variety of enrichment opportunities to support student achievement.

One hundred twenty-six elementary schools offer before and after school programs. Children remain at school, enrolled in a safe, convenient, and affordable program. Many schools also offer full-day summer programs. To meet the needs of each school community, elementary principals may choose the OCPS Extended Day Enrichment Program or a program operated by an approved outsourced vendor. Programs offer supervision and a variety of enrichment activities for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. All elementary programs are fee-supported by those using their service.

Thirty-nine middle schools offer programs during the school year and many operate during the summer. The middle-school programs (Afterschool Zone and Afterschool All Stars) are funded through a partnership between the school district, Orange County Government (Citizens Commission for Children) and the City of Orlando.
