Extended Day Enrichment Program (EDEP)
The Extended Day Enrichment Program (EDEP) is available at all Alachua County elementary schools. The goal of the program, which is funded through parent fees, is to provide safe and enriching after-school activities that help children develop socially, academically, emotionally and physically. Students may do homework and/or participate in various recreational and enrichment activities. An afternoon snack is provided.
EDEP is also available in middle schools including Fort Clarke, High Springs, Kanapaha, Oak View and Westwood.
The specific program will vary from school to school based on the needs and interests of the students and the expertise of the staff. All programs begin at school dismissal, while closing times vary according to school.
Registration for the after school EDEP program is typically conducted in May for the upcoming school year. Check with your school for current availability. The program also offers a summer EDEP program called Camp Discovery at some schools. Registration for the summer EDEP program is usually held in January.
