Days" on the school calendar. The program will not operate on days that schools are closed due to inclement weather (snow days) but will operate on days designated as "snow make-up days."

The normal hours of operation of the program are from 3:00 to 7:30 p.m. Student activities run from the end of the school day (approximately 3:00 p.m.) until 6:00 p.m. Adult activities are scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The one exception to the normal schedule is that the program is open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. on scheduled "teacher workdays."

The first after school program activity each day is a snack scheduled from 3:00 to 3:15. The snack consists of a serving of fruit (apple, banana, etc.), a starch (crackers, cookie, etc.), or a dairy-based item (cheese, yogurt, etc.), and a beverage (milk, juice, etc.). The snack conforms to the nutrition standards set by the state for school-based food service. Snack menus are set by consultation between the site director, the cafeteria supervisor, and the district nutritionist.

A snack coordinator at each program site, with oversight from the supervisor of the school cafeteria and the site director, is responsible for preparing and serving the snack and cleaning up afterwards. The position of snack coordinator is part-time running from approximately 1:00 to 4:00 in the afternoon.

Supervised homework time is scheduled after the snack. All students in the after school program participate in supervised homework. Tutors, teachers, and other program staff provide supervision. The ratio of staff to students is maintained at a maximum of 1:10. The length of time spent in supervised homework depends on a student's academic situation. Regardless, supervised homework is over for all students at 4:15.

Part of the Individual Academic Plan (IAP) developed for each participant is a determination of the amount of time spent in supervised homework. This is also a time during which students can receive tutoring. Tutoring can be one-on-one or take place in groups of up to five students, depending on the student's need. Another part of the IAP is the determination that tutoring is needed. Tutors can be either adults or high school students. In either case, a tutor must undergo the district's screening process and successfully complete the course of training.
