Bulldog Club Afterschool Program

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE 2019-2020 BULLDOG CLUB AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM
 
Dear Parents,
 
In preparation for the 2019-2020 school year, the District has been working to finalize plans for the Bulldog Club Afterschool Program. We are excited to announce that the Board of Trustees approved the YMCA of the Highland Lakes to take over the operation and management of the District’s afterschool program. In addition, to ensure the lowest monthly cost possible for this transition during the 2019-2020 school year, the Board of Trustees approved the payment of a one-time fee of $25,000 to the YMCA.
 
The proposed YMCA afterschool program for the 2019-2020 school year includes several enhancements as outlined below:
• 5 Days a Week Program from 3:00-6:00 p.m. at Bertram Elementary, Shady Grove Elementary and RJ Richey Elementary (currently only 4 days a week)
• Early Release Day Coverage (currently not being offered)
• Teacher In-Service Day Coverage (currently not being offered)
• State Licensed Program
• CCS Application Assistance
• Financial assistance offered through the YMCA for families that qualify
• Local Program Director
• The cost of the program will be $100 per student, per month for 2019-2020 with a planned fee increase to $120 a month in 2020-2021
 
Burnet CISD will continue to provide:
• Campus facilities to house the afterschool program
• A nutritious snack each day
• Various supplies
 
The District is excited to continue the outstanding partnership with the YMCA and will begin hosting registration events in April and May at each of the Burnet CISD elementary schools. Be watching for more information for these registration events and additional details outlining the 2019-2020 program in the next few weeks. If you have questions, please contact Becca McCrocklin at the
YMCA of the Highland Lakes at bmccrocklin@ymcagwc.org or at 512-756-6180.
 
As a reminder, Bulldog Club will continue to run as is for the remainder of the 2018-2019 school year.
Bulldog Club is a Burnet CISD supported after school program for elementary students hosted at Bertram Elementary, Shady Grove Elementary and RJ Richey Elementary. It provides a safe and nurturing environment for students after school on Monday - Thursday, 3:15-6:15 p.m. Students are provided homework/tutorial time supported by BCISD staff, a healthy snack and enrichment opportunities at their home elementary campus. The enrichment activities are developed and directed by the YMCA of Burnet. The cost of the program is $5 a week per student and there is a one time $20 per student registration fee. Space is limited to 105 students at each elementary campus.
