Before and After School and Summer Programs

  • Each of the 20 elementary schools in the Iowa City Community School District has an on-site program to provide before and after school and summer care.  The District has established strong partnerships with community providers who deliver high quality programs. 

    Many programs have a waiting list, as the demand for before and after school care is great.  The BASP Directors have developed a common BASP entry and waiting list strategy with cohesive entry dates and waiting list practices across the District.  This strategy allows parents and community members to have an understanding of the entrance process. 

    BASP waiting list policy transition for the 2016-2017 to 2018-2019 School Year 

    Jan. 1 (or after) – Feb. 24, 2018:  Current families enrolled in program will re-enroll for the 2018-2019 school year, including siblings of current families.

    Feb. 24 – Mar. 25, 2018:  If there are openings in the program, families on the grandfathered waiting list will be offered positions based on availability.  If a family declines a position, they will be removed from the grandfathered waiting list and will have to resubmit an application for the lottery system, if the interest for a future position arises.  Programs will accept applications from new families interested in a position at program.  A lottery list will be generated from this pool of applicants.

    March 31, 2018:  The lottery waiting list is wiped clean, families interested in program may submit an application for the lottery system for the 2018-2019 school year.

    March 3 – April 3, 2018: Collecting waiting list apps to place on list by lottery draw.                                            

    April 3, 2018:  LOTTERY DRAW, in front of office personnel. Any spots still available will be offered to families on the lottery list.  If the program is already full, children will remain on the lottery waiting list.

    April 2018:  Any spots available will be offered to families on the lottery list.  If the program is already full, children will remain on the lottery waiting list.
