Kids Club UPDATE (3-8-19)

posted Mar 8, 2019, 11:19 AM by Traci Peterson

Happy March, Families!  Here is our latest program update:

 

Kids Club New ONLINE System - EZChildTrack

We are happy to announce that we have chosen the EZChildTrack system for online registration AND payment!   The signed contract with the company is scheduled to be ratified at the March 12th Board meeting.  This upgrade is possible because of our 2019 fee increase that began in January.  It is very exciting!

 

We know that you will have a LOT of questions, so here is some basic information:

§  Setup of the system is well underway and will be complete by the end of the month.

§  We hope to have families register/create an account on EZChildTrack in April.

§  We have a tentative goal to start online payments in May.

§  There will be a short transition period where families can pay online or by paper check while we complete the change to the new system. 

§  There will be no additional fees for paying with an ACH transfer (e-check), but there will be a small fee for paying with a credit card that families would pay.

§  New items:  auto-payment will be available and families will receive an invoice for program fees each month.

§  You will continue to receive updates about how this will work and what we need from you to make this successful!

 

Alisal Kids Club to Pilot Security System

Also included in the fee increase for this year was added security for our sites.  We have been meeting regularly with our Director of Facilities, Nick Olsen, the Director of Technology, Amy Nichols, and the Director of MOT, Myla Grasso.  We have decided to pilot a camera/entry system at Alisal Kids Club.  We are hoping to get this installed early in the Spring and will be asking the families and staff for their feedback to make a final decision.

 

We are still meeting about the details and working with a Technology Integrator to select the best system for us.  We are very eager to install additional security features.  And although it will look different from site to site, after a successful pilot, we plan to install a system at the other seven Kids Club sites!

 

Survey Time Again at Kids Club – Your feedback is wanted!

It is that time of year when we will be surveying our students, our staff, and our families about the Kids Club program.  What do you like?  What would you like to see?  

 

Your input matters to us - please complete this brief Family Questionnaire. The survey will be open until Friday, March 22nd.  We would appreciate your participation and will share the results with you in the next update.

 

Kids Club Holiday Schedule 2019-20

The Holiday Schedule for the next school year is now complete!  It is attached to this email, it is on our website, and there will be paper copies for you available at the site in the next week.

 

If you have any questions about anything in this update, you can email our Program Director, Traci Peterson at tpeterson@pleasantonusd.net or talk to your Site Supervisor.  

 

That is all the news for now, and we are looking forward to our exciting new happenings!

 

Traci, Jeanne, and the Site Supervisors (on behalf of the SUPER Kids Club staff!)
