PAL Program FAQs
What is the PAL Program?
The PAL (Play and Learn!) Program is an extension of RSRPD's reputable Before and After School Club. Understanding the need for addtional care, in addtion to support during Virtual Learning, RSRPD has created a full day program that does just that. With support for completion of Virtual Learning, as well as recreational programs, enrichment opportunities, creativity in the arts, it is a dynamic program that serves to meet the needs and interest of various youth.
Who can attend?
The program is designed for youth in grades JK/TK to 6th grade. Those interested in a middle school program should join our interest list at https://rsrpd.maxgalaxy.net/Home.aspx.
When does it start and how long does it run?
PAL program is expected to start on Monday, August 17, 2020 and run through Friday, June 4, 2021. The program covers 198 school days (180) and non-school days (18), including winter and spring breaks. RSRPD is closed for major holidays.
What is the program fee and how are payments made?
The program fees are broken into monthly payments of $625/month. Monthly fees are set up on an auto-payment to withdrawal on the first of every month, August through June. August payment is pro-rated at $313 and June's payment pro-rated at $156.
What happens if I am late on my payment?
After 5 days a late charge of $25 will be added to your account. If payment is not received by the 10th of the month, participants will not be able to attend the PAL program until the account is current. Chronic tardiness on payments may result in removal from the program.
Where is the PAL program being offered?
Currently our interest list is at our traditional Before and After School Club sites. However we are working with SVUSD and expect those locations to change. We anticipate our program to be at Houghton Park, Berylwood Park, the Knolls Station and a few SVUSD elementary schools.
How will my child complete their Virtual Learning?
Participants will be asked to bring their charged Chromebook and other school supplies, as needed, to complete SVUSD assignments. Scheduled time will be allotted for students to complete their Virtual Learning assignments and attend virtual conferencing with their teacher. RSRPD staff will guide student learning and monitor virtual learning calls, but are not responsible for the completion of any SVUSD educational requirements. While RSRPD strives to help students meet every educational goal, we reserve the right to defer any virtual learning assignments to be completed at home.
What is the staff to student ratio?
RSRPD strives for a 1:10 staff to student ratio.
What do I need to bring daily?
Families will be asked to provide the following items daily: Lunch, Morning Snack, Afternoon Snack, Reusable Water Bottle, School Supplies (see below), Charged SVUSD Issued Chromebook. All items should be labeled with the youth's name.
