OST Program ELO Eligibility Requirements
In order for OST programs to be eligible to receive expanded learning opportunities, programs must meet one of the following criteria:
- Be actively engaged in the Palm Beach County Quality Improvement System (QIS) for afterschool;
- Be located in a Title 1 public school or be a community-based program in one of the following zip codes:
33403, 33404, 33405, 33406, 33407, 33408, 33409, 33410, 33415, 33417, 33430, 33438, 33460, 33461, 33462, 33476, 33493, 33435
- Any exception to the above needs pre-approval by Prime Time staff.
Schedule an ELO to Visit Your Program
If your program meets the eligibility requirements, you may schedule a session directly with the ELO provider.
If the site is not yet registered in Prime Time’s system, please complete the “OST Program Registration” form. Upon the receipt of this form, the Community Partnerships specialist will contact the program and schedule a site visit. During the site visit, the manager will assess the:
- Licensing status
- Needs of the community
- Average daily attendance
- Staff-to-children ratio
- “Feeder” schools (if community or faith-based program)
- Perceived understanding by program staff of the commitment/pro-active participation required to effectively use ELOs
- Prime Time will make the final decision to approve or deny the program's eligibility to receive ELOs.
