After School Program
Fort Worth After School (FWAS) has provided high quality, structured after school enrichment programs since the Fall of 2000. Originally serving 52 sites with about 2300 daily participants, FWAS has grown to 85 sites and serves about 9,500 students on a daily basis. FWAS participating sites include General (FWISD/ CFW) funded and 21st Century Afterschool Center on Education (A.C.E.) funded sites.
Fort Worth After School is a collaboration of Fort Worth ISD, the City of Fort Worth and the TEA 21st Century Afterschool Centers on Education (A.C.E.) grant.
In addition to providing student enrichment programs, A.C.E. sites also provide ESL, GED, family literacy, and other programs for parents and adult family members.
Activities at all A.C.E. centers may be placed in seven broad categories:
- Tutoring/ Homework
