Cypress-Fairbanks ISD (CFISD) plans to implement a before- and after-school care program at the elementary campuses beginning in the 2010-2011 school year. The school district is creating the program as an effort to generate revenue. A letter to parents said this program will replace the after-school care programs currently offered by the YMCA and will be staffed with CFISD employees.

This program will support student academic performance, but will not be an extension of the instructional school day. After-school care will be provided from the end of the campus day until 6:30pm, Monday through Friday. Program staff members will be available to help students with their homework.

Fees have not been established, but are expected to be in line with other childcare programs. Reduced rates will be offere to parents with more than one child participating, as well as CFISD employees.

The development of the program is underway and plans are to be ready on the first day of the 2010-2011 school year. Registration will begin later this spring. For information about program development and student program registration, visit .
