  • Thirty minutes of homework time is provided Monday – Thursday.  Although we cannot provide one on one tutoring, staff is constantly supervising the children.  Encourage your child(ren) to ask for help if they need.  If you have questions or concerns about your child’s homework please feel free to speak to Ms. Burkey.


  •   New Student Registration


    Registration for the 2021-2022 school year opens to all students at 9:00 AM Monday, May 3rd.  The registration form is available at www.sbac.edu/EDEP. Filling out the form does NOT guarantee a child a space in the program. If your child does receive a space, your school’s EDEP coordinator will still need to contact you to complete the registration process. Once a site is full your request will be placed on the waitlist and put in a lottery for any spaces that become available.  

    Current school year 2020-2021, please contact site coordinator at 352-318-2482 or burkeyed@gm.sbac.edu
