Welcome to the amazing world of SCOPE....

Fun times at SCOPE!

Welcome to Project SCOPE

Project SCOPE is a before and after school program for the children of parents who work or are in educational training. The program provides the kind of care which promotes social, emotional and physical development through supervised activities. SCOPE is a program which compliments both home and school by providing a secure atmosphere for the children.

The Project SCOPE Office has moved to 2120 E. Reservoir (Wanless School in Grandview). Parking is available in the front of the building. Office hours are 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. Phone 217/525-3309, Fax 217/535-2757.

In order to attend Project SCOPE, you must first register your child through the SCOPE Office. Once you have registered at the SCOPE office, you will be given a form to take to the SCOPE Staff at your child's school. This form must be presented the first day your child attends SCOPE.

Students must be registered by August 14, 2013 in order to start SCOPE on the first day of school. If students register after this date, they will not be able to start SCOPE until Tuesday, August 26, 2013.

After the regular school year begins, upon registering your child in the SCOPE program, there is a 24 hour waiting period before a child can begin attending SCOPE.

Students may only attend the SCOPE program at the school they attend.
