Four more Douglas County BASE programs rated as Accredited with Distinction

Paula Zwemke received fantastic news last month.
The Before and After School Enterprise (BASE) Director was notified that four more BASE program sites have been rated as Accredited with Distinction by the Council of Accreditation (COA), the highest rating possible by the agency. Lone Tree Elementary, Gold Rush Elementary, Redstone Elementary, and Soaring Hawk Elementary BASE programs are the latest to join a rapidly growing list in Douglas County.

Summer information

Please accept our apologies for the delay.

Our new billing, attendance, accounting system is used by all of our BASE Programs. This is an advancement for our practices! This also means that general censuses must be reached before we have all of our info in place. The good and the bad.

This info was released in the last email- but incase you missed it!

This is what we have so far:)
