    Missouri Department of Elementary & Secondary Education (DESE)


    All afterschool programs can support the academic development of participants by maximizing a variety of œteachable moments to promote the cognitive, social, and recreational health of students. School Age Community (SAC) programs can also reduce the negative effects many children experience from being in selfcare (i.e., negative peer pressure, loneliness, boredom, fear, accidents, and poor school performance).

    School Age Community Programs are those schoolbased programs offering services to all children, including children with disabilities, from ages 5 through 12 (children must be less than thirteen years of age) unless targeted students are under supervision of the court in which case the SAC program may serve students to the age of 19. School Age Community Programs can be provided to children enrolled during nonschool hours, after their daily class sessions or during other nonschool hours (i.e., breaks, holidays, or weekends, etc.). School Age Community Programs incorporate a strong sense of school, family, and community members that collaboratively contribute to the growth of students as they mature into caring, competent, and responsible adults. Additionally, School Age Community Programs should meet the needs of working parent(s) during nonschool days.

    SAC funds may be used to implement a new program or to expand and/or enhance current afterschool programs, whether supported by public or private funds. For example, an awardee may use funds to align activities to help students meet local and state academic standards if those services are not part of the current afterschool program

    COMPETITIVE PRIORITY The DESE will award competitive priority points to applications that:
    • Propose to target services to students who attend school listed as either focus or priority schools (maximum 3 points)
    • Operate SAC program year round, including the summer months, breaks, holidays (except legal holidays), inclement weather, teacher conference, and other days when public schools might not be in session (maximum 2 points).
    • Include a district (not site) applying for a SAC grant for the first time. First time is defined as no grant awarded to the district beginning with the 2011 school to present (maximum 5 points).
    • Propose to operate in a school with higher percentages of free and reduced priced meals (maximum 4 points). 10080%: 4 points; 7960%: 3 points; 5945%: 2 points; 4440%: 1 point
    The DESE requires SAC programs to offer services no less than four (4) days per week during a typical school year and no less than 13 hours per week during nonschool hours or periods when school is not in session (including after school, before school, evenings, weekends, holidays, summers, or other school vacation periods). Each community should base its Application on the needs of its students and their families

    History of Funding

    The DESE receives SAC funding from the Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) Grant that originates from the Federal Health and Human Services Agency. The money is distributed to Missouri's Department of Social Services (DSS) and is subcontracted to the DESE to administer certain portions (i.e., SAC Grant).
