March 27, 2019

RTSD Partners with “Right At School” to Provide Enhanced Before- and After-School Care Services to Elementary Families

Radnor Township School District elementary families will soon benefit from an enhanced before- and after-school care program that will provide safe and engaging in-school extracurricular programs to students. The program, “Right At School,” was approved by the RTSD School Board at its March 26 business meeting and will take place in a student’s home elementary school directly before and after the school day. The program provides a curriculum focusing on student enrichment through activities led by highly trained educators.  
 
Right At School is scheduled to begin serving RTSD elementary families starting the 2019-20 school year. The district’s current before- and after-school care provider, Family Support Services (FSS), will no longer provide these services after the 2018-19 school year. 
  
“We appreciate the positive partnership and experience we’ve shared with FSS,” said Kenneth E. Batchelor, RTSD superintendent. “We are ready to take the next step with a new provider we are confident will enrich the educational and club experience for our youngest learners.” 
 
Right At School’s programs provide students with enrichment activities that extend learning in a fun and meaningful way as well as opportunities for students to take on projects, develop peer leadership skills, get outside for fitness, and explore personal interests. Right At School’s curriculum is aligned to state standards and engages students in multi-sensory, multi-intelligence learning. Children will experience fun-filled programs focused on building their creativity, conditioning, character and confidence. Programs run every day school is in session, registration is flexible, and scheduling is convenient. All programs take place in the comfort and safety of Radnor Township School District elementary schools.   
 
 “Our mission is to inspire a love of learning, support schools, and give parents peace of mind,” said Mark Rothschild, CEO of Right At School. “We’re thrilled to provide great quality enrichment to Radnor students and flexibility to families, at no cost to the district.” 
 
Right At School will be providing discounts for siblings, students receiving free and/or reduced lunch, military families, and staff members. State subsidies for low-income families will also be accepted.
