Welcome to our Uvalde CISD 21 st Century Afterschool Centers on Education “ACE” Program. The ACE program is administered by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and is funded through the 21st Century Community Learning Centers initiative of the U.S. Department of Education. Our ACE Program currently serves approximately 650 students in Pre-K to 7 th grade at Dalton Elementary, Anthon Elementary, Robb Elementary, Flores Elementary, and Morales Jr. High.
ACE Program Purpose and Goals
The purpose of the ACE Program is to provide a safe afterschool care environment for students along with daily homework support, academic enrichment classes, and extra-curricular opportunities. The activities and clubs selected for the program support the school day curriculum and give students the opportunity to grow both academically and socially. Our program is staffed by certified teachers, tutors, paraprofessionals, and
community members that all share the same passion to see our students succeed. The overall goal of the ACE program is to have all students graduate from high school prepared for college and the workforce. To achieve this goal, ACE’s objectives are to improve academic performance, attendance, behavior, promotion rates, graduation rates, and family involvement in student education.
ACE Program Family Engagement Plan
The ACE program also believes that a strong partnership between home and school improves the academic success of every student. Our Family Engagement Plan provides ACE parents and families with academic learning workshops throughout the school year including parent continuing education opportunities.
