Extended School Enrichment,
a Before and After School Program
Extended School Enrichment (ESE) is founded on the belief that every student is capable of success. We are committed to setting high expectations and assuring the development of a strong foundation in basic life skills. The program offers quality before and after school care to all children enrolled in K-6 within Carmel Clay Schools.
Each of the 11 elementary school sites will have the same core components of ESE, with each school customized to serve the best interests of the students and parents/guardians. Our site supervisors and kid counselors act as mentors to students while teaching fundamental skills. We cannot wait for your child(ren) to attend our program this year!

Benefits of ESE
Our before and after-school program prioritizes a safe environment for every student, thus providing parents/guardians a high level of confidence in our team. We also recognize that our program’s success is driven by student voice and choice; therefore, we place a very high level of importance on listening to student input and acting upon student ideas.

How do I register?
Visit EZChildTrack to open a new account and register for your child’s enrollment in our before and afterschool program.
What do I need to do to get my child started?
New ESE parents/guardians must create a family account (see link below) and select “New Parents Open Account”.
Returning parents/guardians can use the link below, and will enter their email and password to log into their existing account. From there, parents/guardians can submit their application for their child to attend ESE and pay the prerequisite $40 registration fee per child. Please note that the registration fee is only paid once per school year per enrolled child. Once this step has been completed, the parent/guardian will receive an automated email stating that their registration for ESE was a success.
How will I receive confirmation of enrollment and know when my child(ren) can start?
After the initial application for ESE enrollment is submitted an email stating that registration was a success is received. The parent/guardian will then receive a second email stating the submission was approved.
Once you have received this email, then your child can begin attending ESE. It is recommended that you contact the Site Supervisor at your child’s school prior to his/her first day at ESE to confirm expected attendance.
The parent/guardian must also update their child’s transportation plan with the school, so that the school is aware of the parent/guardian’s wishes for the child to attend ESE afterschool.
Where can I view your Parent/Guardian Guide?

What is the sign-in/out procedure?
Parents/guardians are free to drop-off and pick-up their child at any point during ESE. Each parent/guardian is responsible for walking their child into ESE Before-School; students are not to be dropped off at the school site without accompaniment by a parent/guardian. Students are only released to individuals listed as “authorized pick-ups” who must be at least 16 years of age and must be listed within the participant’s online account. All ESE staff is required to check identification of authorized individuals. The sign-in/out table will be clearly displayed and located in an optimal place for parent/guardian accessibility. Late fees will be assessed to any pick-ups after 6:00 p.m.; the charge is $1 for every minute late per child (e.g. a child picked up at 6:04 p.m. equals a late fee charge of $4).
What are your emergency procedures?
ESE staff and students will practice live emergency drills throughout the school year. The drills will consist of various emergencies to ensure proper preparation in the case of an actual crisis during the ESE program.

Academic Assistance Statement
The Extended School Enrichment program will provide time for your child(ren) to work on homework while at ESE based on the parent/guardian choice made on the ESE Homework Agreement at time of registration. ESE will provide supplies and support to students during our academic assistance portion of the afterschool program. ESE employees will check homework for completion and, if time allows, check homework for accuracy. ESE will provide alternate activities and options to students who do not have or have already completed their homework.
Students are responsible for bringing necessary homework with them to the ESE program. Trips back to the classroom to retrieve work that was left behind is not always an option. Students are responsible for knowing what homework needs to be completed and/or writing their homework assignments in their assignment notebooks.
Parents and guardians, please be sure to check your child’s homework at home to ensure completion and accuracy of work. Communicate with ESE supervisors if your academic assistance preference for your child(ren) has changed or if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s homework.

Continued Services Through “Partner in Prevention”
We have achieved “Partner in Prevention” status again this year, a designation awarded by the nonprofit Darkness to Light. This title is given to organizations which take extra steps to protect the children they serve. “Partner in Prevention” was created as a national standard to help parents and caregivers recognize organizations that take child protection seriously by implementing policy and training staff to prevent child sexual abuse.
One in 10 children will be sexually abused before the age of 18. We earned the “Partner in Prevention” designation by providing Stewards of Children training to over 90% of its management, staff, and volunteers. This evidence-informed program is scientifically proven to help participants prevent and respond to child sexual abuse.
Darkness to Light is an international organization that leads the movement to end child sexual abuse by educating and empowering adults in education, youth-serving organizations, and communities to protect children.
