What is Project SCOPE?

We are a before and/or after school program that is located at each elementary school in District 186. 


There is limited capacity at each location. Students who register for SCOPE by noon on a Wednesday may start SCOPE the following Monday. 

To register:  Click on the blue link below, fill out the information on the Google form and submit it.


IMPORTANT:  Once our office receives the registration form, we will send you an EMAIL back to let you know if we have an opening or not for your child.  This email is very important because it will let you know whether or not we have an opening for your child and it will indicate the DATE that your child may start Project SCOPE!

Finanical aid

Project SCOPE works with Community Connection Point for families that need assistance with their weekly fee. For more information on Community Connection Point (CCP), please call 525-2805 or click on the blue link which will take you to their web site. The web site will allow you to print an application if you are applying for financial assistance for the first time.  If you currently have CCCC and are changing providers, you will need to call CCCC to request a Change of Provider form.  Once you complete your information, please deliver your CCCC form to the white dropbox located at the SCOPE office, 2120 E. Reservoir.   This dropbox is located outside of our entrance and is locked, so you may drop your paperwork off after hours.  Our staff will complete our portion of the form and forward it to CCP.  


Year End Statements:  Please be reminded that Project SCOPE does not provide a year end statement for tax purposes.  If needed, we can duplicate the receipts that you have received for a charge of .50 cents per receipt and we ask that you allow two weeks for them to be located and copied.
