Pacer School Age Child Care (SACC)
The SACC program offers quality childcare services before and after school for students in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade at all five district elementary schools. SACC Programs typically begin on the first day of school and end on the last day of school and operate Monday – Friday with the exception of school holidays. An All-day SACC program is offered on some days when school is closed.

Our curriculum is based on the Science of Learning and Development (SoLD), a research-based foundation that focuses on equitable whole-child program design. A copy of the SoLD Design Principles can be found at each program location. Our programs also incorporate each school’s Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) plan into our programs.
Program staff align planned activities to Ohio’s Learning Standards. Alignment is typically completed for age bands K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 to ensure a variety of developmentally appropriate activities for all participants. Aligned standards are indicated on the weekly activity plan and posted at the program site. Our curriculum is designed to ensure alignment with the school day by ensuring that time, space, and support for academic enrichment is available for all students.
Afterschool and summer learning programs are a unique setting where youth can connect to positive adult mentors, feel safe to try new things, and have the opportunity to acquire new skills and develop mastery in an area. They help to develop the critical social and emotional skills that help create happier, more engaged, and more productive citizens. The Ohio State Board of Education has adopted social-emotional learning standards that provide a continuum of development across five competencies: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, and Responsible Decision-Making. A copy of the standards is available at every location and weekly “positive youth development” activities are designed and implemented to support these standards.
