After School Education and Safety (ASES)

Woodland Joint Unified School District has After School Education and Safety (ASES) programs at eight elementary school sites: Beamer, Dingle, Freeman, Maxwell, Plainfield, Tafoya, Whitehead and Woodland Prairie. The ASES program is funded through a state grant and requires students to attend the program until 6:00 pm each and every day. The program starts immediately after school and consists of homework support, enrichment, recreation and a nutritious snack. Our mission is to create an enriching, safe, academic and fun environment, conducive to learning, that will impact students’ education and lives in a positive manner. The program is open to students in grades two through six; some sites allow kindergarten and first grade students. 
SAVE THE DATE! ASES Summer Programs return again this year, June 13-24, 2022. Check with your site coordinators for times.
