ASES-After School Education and Safety

 The  After-School Education and Safety Program (ASES) is funded by a grant from the State of California.  We serve the following sites:

Cordova Gardens Elementary Cordova Meadows Elementary Cordova Villa Elementary
Peter J. Shields Elementary Rancho Cordova Elementary Williamson Elementary
White Rock Elementary Mills Middle  W.E. Mitchell Middle


The ASES program consists of three components: 1) academic, 2) academic enrichment, and 3) recreational.  The education component consists of a curriculum that complements the school's academic program.  The enrichment component will include STEM activities. The recreational component will consist of the SPARK curriculum and other resources.  

Admission to the Folsom Cordova Unified School District's ASES Program is based upon parental commitment to the program requirements.    Students will be invited to join the ASES program as spaces become available.

Students should attend ASES on a daily basis. (However, if they are absent from school, students may not attend  that day.) Excessive absences from ASES may result in students being dropped from the afterschool program. The grant's intent is for elementary students to attend ASES for  3 hours per day; Middle School students for 2 hours a day. 

ASES is funded by a state grant that is meant to serve students who most need this afterschool program. Therefore, excessive requests for early release for other activities may lead to the student being dropped from the ASES Program. Students must be picked up by 6:00 p.m.  Repeated late pick-ups may result in your student losing their spot in ASES.


Within certain limits and with prior approval from the ASES Director, students may be excused from ASES to engage in other activities such as team sports, church, Scouts, etc.  Parents must give a completed Parallel Program Request Form to the ASES Associate at least five days before the start of the Parallel Program for approval to miss ASES for this purpose. For the least amount of disruptions, elementary students with pre-approved Parallel Program forms, medical appointments or special occasions should be picked up  from ASES between Check-in and 2:45 p.m. or at supper time between 3:45 p.m. -4:00 p.m.  Middle school students may be picked up from ASES for Parallel Programs/medical appointments at check-in 3:00 p.m. or at supper time between 3:45 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

If you have a family emergency and must pick your student up at a non-approved time, please call our program office, so we can alert the ASES staff.

Our staff signs students into ASES  after school. Our program closes at 6:00 pm sharp.  Students must be signed out by an adult at least 16 years old, who is listed on the enrollment form. (An adult who is unfamiliar to ASES staff will be asked to show identification.)

If your child is not picked up by 6:00 p.m., and we have been unable to contact anyone on the emergency form, we may contact law enforcement.

For safety reasons, students should always check into the ASES Program directly after school. 

These are students who are able to walk home alone safely.  They are released at 5:30 p.m. and must walk straight home.  During daylight savings time, walkers are released at 4:30 p.m.  The first day following spring break or when daylight savings time ends, walkers are again released at 5:30 p.m. Bike riders must wear a helmet.  

If your child appears sick, or complains of sickness while participating in the program, the staff will notify the parent/guardian immediately.  Staff will ask you to pick up your child from the program to prevent the risk of infection. The program is not equipped to care for sick children.  

The emergency contact information you have completed is extremely important.  Please be sure to notify the staff of any changes in your child's medical needs, as well as any changes that might occur to your home and work numbers, and the emergency contact numbers you have supplied.  


If your child is injured, the program staff will take whatever steps may be necessary to ensure that your child receives emergency medical care.  This can include, but is not limited to, administering emergency first aid or CPR, attempting to contact you or your emergency contacts, calling an ambulance or paramedic, calling your family doctor, and/or accompanying the child to an emergency hospital.  

Please see the Parent's Rights and Responsibilities and the Student Code of Conduct at  
We support and encourage open communication. If, at any time, you have questions or concerns, please make an appointment to talk with the ASES Associate and /or ASES Coordinator.
