Program Overview

The SBCISD ACE After School Program has been serving the children of our schools since 1999 and has been funded by federal, state, and local funds. Throughout this time, state requirements have shifted from general enrichment activities to an academically focused program. The program is an effective way to provide a safe haven for the children in our community. The hours they spend in the program gives them an opportunity to further engage in academic, enrichment, and social activities. Each campus has a site based committee that evaluates the schools’ needs and makes recommendations to select students and incorporate academic learning classes based on their need. 

CAPS (Committed to Advancing Parents and Students)

SBCISD ACE After School Program was awarded the Cycle 9 Grant from the Texas Education Agency, which is named CAPS (Committed to Advancing Parents and Students). The purpose of the program is to extend learning opportunities outside of the regular school day to improve educational outcomes in academic performance, attendance, positive behavior, grade promotion and graduation rates. This grant will provide services for students from the following campuses: Frank Roberts Elementary, Sullivan Environmental Science Academy, La Encantada Elementary, Berta Cabaza Middle School, Miller Jordan Middle School, Riverside Middle School and Veterans Memorial Academy (VMA).
