ABOUT COMMUNITY EDUCATION
Every district student will have lifelong learning access to high-quality programs through the Community Education Department.
Community Education provides a range of enrichment experiences that ensure every student is Ready for Tomorrow.
The gap between the skills people learn and the skills people need is becoming more obvious, as traditional learning falls short of equipping students with the knowledge, they need to thrive in the 21st century. Today’s job candidate must be able to collaborate, communicate, solve problems (critical thinking), and think outside the box (creativity). The Community Education After-School Program believes that we can develop all these skills mainly through social and emotional learning (SEL).
Our Community Education After-School Programs’ enrichment activities focus on SEL because the research has shown that the long-term benefits of its outcomes have produced higher rates of employability and educational fulfillment. Focusing on the social and emotional proficiency of a student will equip children to succeed in this evolving 21st century world and to be Ready for Tomorrow.
1. Provide quality supervision to students while parents are at work.
2. Promote social and emotional growth of all students in the after-school program.
3. Offer enrichment programs that supplement academic learning time during after-school.
The Community Education After-School Programs’ enrichment activities are designed to provide a safe place for children to experience academic enrichment, SEL growth, keep kids active and healthy, and meet the needs of the Salt Lake City School District (SLCSD) community. The Community Education After-School Programs are funded by tuition and grants. All our SLCSD elementary and middle schools have an after-school program to support our families.
The After-School Program expectations align with the school day expectations. Daily rotations include CARE (Café, Academics, Recreation, & Enrichment):
• Café: a daily healthy Smart Snack is provided (Kids Café meal served at Title 1 schools);
