After School Program
All Douglas County School System Elementary Schools offer after-school care for all students.
ASP DAILY RATE INCREASED FROM $8 to $10 PER DAY PER CHILD EFFECTIVE JANUARY 4, 2023.
The mission of the Douglas County School System After School Program (ASP) is to provide a safe, relaxed, and enjoyable environment for its students. The ASP provides enrichment activities, social interaction with peers, and homework help in a well-supervised, structured setting. The Fee-Based After School Program sponsored by the Douglas County School System is designed to provide adult supervision, in a group setting, to students whose parents work outside the home after school hours. Programs typically open the first day of school.
After ScHool Hours
The ASP is open from 2:45 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. We are closed on holidays, 1/2 early release, and summer break. We ask that parents or guardians please pick up their children no later than 6:00 p.m. Programs do charge a late pick-up up fee of $1.00 per minute, per family after 6:00 p.m.
All fee-based after-school program sites plan to start their ASP on the first day of school. The ASP concludes during the last week of the school year and follows the school system calendar.

The After School Program does not provide educational services to students and is not intended to be an educational program. Rather, group activities in which students participate include movement, homework, computer games, and story time. All the after-school programs in the Douglas County School System are registered with Bright from the Start, Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning. The school system programs are exempt from licensure, and letters of exemption are posted in the school office.
As funds are available, partial scholarships for the ASP may be available to students based on need.
All families must pay the $10.00 registration fee regardless of financial status.
State assistance is accepted, the parent must notify the state of a facility change, provide the updated certification, and present it to the school.
Please contact the ASP for any additional questions.
The After School Program follows the discipline policies of the Douglas County School System. Each school will establish specific discipline guidelines at its school site. Depending on the offense, students may be temporarily or permanently removed from the ASP.
Schedule of Activities
Students will receive a nutritious snack each day before starting their homework.
Instructors work with students to complete daily assignments, assigned homework, and other projects.
Activities may include cultural enrichment, violence prevention, drug awareness, community service projects, and technology exposure.
Supporting All Students
Eligible students with disabilities who enroll in the After School Program will be provided reasonable accommodations and/or modifications to afford them meaningful access to the program. Accommodations are considered reasonable where the provision of them would not result in a fundamental alteration of the program or the services offered by the program or create an undue financial or administrative burden. The After School Program does not provide educational services to students and is not intended to be an educational program.
