APG Beacon Afterschool FAQs

What if my child has a doctors appointment? Can he/she leave early?

Yes. It would be best if your child knows about the appointment ahead of time so that they may sign themselves out. 

What if I have a scheduled monthly appointment for my child?

You may fill out an Early Release form to remind your child to sign him/herself out early. 

My child is in Band and will miss a lot of the Project Based Learning; can they still be in the program?

Yes. We trust that other programs such as sports and music offerings are safe and developing skills similar to those we hone in Project Based Learning. We will work to accommodate. 

How many hours are required for my child to stay in the program?

Your child will easily make the required number of hours by the school district to count for our program, we just want him/her to be able to take advantage of the balance our program offers between Project Based Learning to Homework Club.

Can my child only do homework in Beacon?

No. Our program is centered around the science of Youth Development via Project Based Learning, with an emphasis on the whole child. We recognize that 21st Century skills are going to be necessary to your children's success as they endeavor to build educational and professional careers. 

What are 21st Century skills?

Learning to collaborate with others and connect through technology are essential skills in a knowledge-based economy. For more information refer to: http://atc21s.org/index.php/about/what-are-21st-century-skills/. ATC21S started with a group of more than 250 researchers across 60 institutions worldwide who categorized 21st-century skills internationally info four broad categories: ways of thinking, ways of working, tools for working and skills for living in the world. 

Is the Beacon program flexible with varying student schedules?

Yes and no. Innovation is an SNBC core value so we're open to change, but we need to be consistent and set standards.
