Plans for Project SCOPE under Hybrid Learning

If District 186 adopts a Hybrid Learning schedule after Winter Break, Project Scope will be available only to families who chose the Hybrid Model for the second semester. Childcare will be offered before and after school on the two days a week a student attends school in person, and all day on Monday. There will NOT be all-day childcare available Tuesday through Friday on the days students are at home. 

Space will be limited to 15 students per school on Mondays and 20 students per school the other four days of the week. Families currently enrolled in SCOPE will have the first opportunity to register for SCOPE under Hybrid Learning. Other families may register electronically through this Website after a firm date for Hybrid Learning has been announced. 

Please watch this Website for more information.

Due to restrictions and guidelines, we will only accept a certain number of registrations for each elementary school. Limited openings remain available. Registrations will be accepted in date order.

Once our office receives this registration form, and if we have an opening at that location, we will send a confirmation letter to the email provided and indicate the date your child may start.  If we do not have an opening, we will send an email indicating that your registration has been put on a waiting list.

Program details, payments and CCP information.

During this period of Remote Learning, Project SCOPE is offering childcare from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily at each elementary school for both Hybrid and Remote students. 

Students may only attend the SCOPE program at the school that they attend. The weekly rate is $105 per child. Payments are due on Monday for the week of service.Checks are to be made payable to: Project SCOPE.

We work with Community Connection Point for families that need assistance with their fee. For more information on Community Connection Point (CCP), please call 525-2805 or go to the Web Resources link at the top left side of this page for a link to CCP's web site. You will need to pick up an application from CCP, complete your information and deliver the form to the dropbox at the SCOPE office, 2120 E. Reservoir. Our staff will complete our portion of the form and forward it to CCP.  

If your child is not starting SCOPE immediately, you will still need to pay $105 per week to reserve the spot.
