Scottsbluff Public Schools Receives Grant for After School Program Expansion

Scottsbluff Public Schools will be offering two new sites for the After School Program for the 2018-2019 school year after receiving a $76,075 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant. Next year, Longfellow and Lincoln Heights Elementary schools will be new sites for the After School Program, joining Westmoor and Roosevelt who currently serve 75 students at each location.

This expansion will allow SBPS to provide after school care for an additional 85 students and for students participating in the program to stay at their neighborhood elementary school.  During non-school hours, these programs offer hands-on learning and activities to improve overall student success, increase student social benefits and positive behavioral changes, and increase active and meaningful family and community engagement.

In addition to the expansion grant, SBPS also received a 5 year $50,000 continuation grant for the Westmoor Elementary site.

Due to the expansion, SBPS is now hiring After School Program Site Coordinators and Paraeducators for the 2018-19 school year. For details visit
