Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


1. How long and what time are the classes?


All classes offered will run for 1 hour (60 minutes) afterschool unless otherwise noted. ACE classes will begin 5-10 minutes after their specific grade dismissal time. An ACE Monitor and/or parent volunteer will check-in and check-out the students.

2. What is the capacity of the classes?


ACE class capacities depend on grade level and class subject. There is a minimum and maximum headcount. Classes that do not meet the minimum will not be offered. For classes that exceed the maximum, students will be on a waitlist.

3. Do you provide childcare after the ACE program?


No, but Rainbow Rising ( is open to IUSD students. Please contact them directly to inquire about availability and arrange care after our program.

4. My child is enrolled at Rainbow Rising Cadence Park after school. Does my student go to the childcare center before the ACE classes?


If your student is enrolled after school in the onsite childcare program please have your student meet at the centralized meeting location for the ACE classes instead of going directly to the childcare center. IPSF works directly with the onsite childcare centers to notify them of any students enrolled in ACE classes. Once your students’ ACE class has finished a parent volunteer coordinator or IPSF monitor will walk the students enrolled in the childcare program to Rainbow Rising.

5. Do you provide scholarships?


Financial support is available to families demonstrating financial need. The scholarship form with more information on requirements and how to apply can be found here:
