BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Parents who send their children to ”aftercare” at elementary schools in Palm Beach County will be paying more for the service during the 2022-2023 school year.
The Palm Beach County School Board is preparing to adopt a school year fee of $2,660.00 per student in aftercare. The fee is used to pay counselors and provide snacks. Aftercare at many schools extends the school day to as late as 6 p.m., providing much needed supervision while parents finish the workday.
The $2,660 fee is $220 increase from the past several years. By hour, the charge is technically $3.70 per hour, but that’s a somewhat meaningless number as aftercare tends to be divided into just two options — those who are seeking coverage until 4 p.m., and those who want the ability to keep their kids at school until 6. There is no ”per hour” option.
The School Board is expected to approve the price increase at next week’s meeting. Many elementary schools have waiting lists for parents wishing to enroll their children in the aftercare program.
