    The After-School Care & Enrichment Services Program (ACES-formerly called ASES) is a partnership with the city and county to improve student performance in school and provide a safe environment after school for students in grades 1-8.

    The program consists of two elements: 


    1. An educational and literacy component in core content areas and time for homework.
