Real Options for City Kids (R.O.C.K.)
The Visitacion Valley Elementary After School Program and its diverse staff effectively serve a diverse group of kids through homework/behavior support and lesson plans revolving around science, math, art, physical activity, and social consciousness. It's three Linked-Day staff and five After School Staff work hard to support and learn from the school's teachers, taking those techniques back to the After School Program to ensure school day and after school alignment.
The ROCK Program runs onsite from 2:40 to 6:00.
