Frequently Asked Questions

How are ASC fees assessed? All billing for ASC is handled through Smart Tuition. The ASC billing period is a 10-month period that begins in August and ends in May. The fee for a child who enrolls after August will be prorated.

Do you reduce the monthly charge on months when school is out for a holiday? Rates are based on the total number of school days and then divided over 10 months, August through May.

What if my child is not on an ASC plan but an emergency arises requiring a need for ASC? No problem. The ASC program is available on a drop-in basis to children enrolled at WSA. The drop-in rates are listed above.

Is ASC open on school holidays and teacher workdays? ASC is not open on school holidays or teacher workdays.

What about early dismissals? If your child is enrolled in an ASC plan which coincides with an early dismissal day, ASC staff will care for your child without any additional charges. Students who are not on a plan and require ASC service on an early dismissal day will be billed at the rate of $10 per hour for registered students and $15 per hour for non-registered students.

If you have any questions about ASC, please contact the ASC director, Peggy Dixon, at 706-731-5260 or .
