The Texas Workforce Commission offers subsidies for private childcare services through the Child Care Services program. From the TWC website…”Child care is a support service for parents who work, attend school, or participate in job training. Those eligible for child care assistance include children under the age of 13: whose parents are receiving or transitioning off public assistance; who are receiving or needing protective services; or whose families are low-income. For more information call the local Workforce Solutions office in Austin at 512.597.7191 or visit the website: http://www.wfscapitalarea.com/

Homework Haven provides students with a structured environment after school (3:50-5:00) in which they have an opportunity to complete their homework, classwork, projects, or make-up assignments. Each week a grade report is produced and any student receiving below a 70 grade average for any course is assigned to Homework Haven for the following week (Monday-Thursday). Students will be notified by their teachers and allowed to call home to notify their parent/guardian, if they are assigned. Students who do not attend Homework Haven are assigned to Saturday School. Failure to attend Saturday School may result in administrative action.
Leading schools around the country have used a method similar to our Homework Haven to lower failure rates and to decrease the number of students repeating a course or grade level. Since NYOS has implemented this research-based approach, our data show that fewer students are receiving zeroes on assignments, projects and classwork. More students are receiving tutorial support during this time and are performing better on classroom assessments and STAAR.

We regret that we cannot continue the YMCA program, due to a lack of suitable space on either campus. Unfortunately, we could not find space for NYOS students at other YMCA locations nearby. We continue to look for options with the YMCA. We will let you know if any alternatives develop.
