BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County School District is almost assuredly now closed for the rest of the year. While there is no official statement at this point from school district officials, BocaNewsNow.com has learned that the Palm Beach County School District’s “after care” leaders have been told to close out the books for the 2019-2020 school year.
Aftercare is a paid program utilized by tens of thousands of students district-wide. Best described as summer camp after school, it is the division of the Palm Beach County School District that oversees afterschool clubs and classes. The program employs hundreds of staffers — largely area college students — who run activities between the close of the school day and the time parents retrieve their children which can be as late as 6 p.m.
Parents will be given the option of accepting refunds or having any balances carried over to the 2020-2021 school year.
