What is SAC?
SAC is an on-site before and after school program for Kindergarten through 8th grade students. The program is fully licensed by the Colorado Department of Human Services. SAC provides students with a low staff to child ratio, homework assistance, nutritional snacks and a safe and welcoming environment.

What are the hours of operation? birds-of-prey.jpg
The AM SAC program begins at 7:00am and ends at the start of the school day. The PM SAC program begins at the end of the school day and ends at 6:00pm.
 
How do I register my child?
You will need to use the Secure Online Registration link on the SAC website.
 
Will you send me a confirmation that I am in the program?
We will email you a confirmation with your child’s official start date.
 
If my child starts in the middle of the month is the tuition prorated?
Yes, the tuition is prorated to reflect payment for only the weeks your child attends the first month. After that the monthly fee is the same each month. Absences cannot be credited or refunded.
 
What if I occasionally need care on days for which my child is not scheduled?
That would be classified as Drop-In Care. A Drop-In Care request must be submitted in writing at least 24 hours prior to the requested date. You may not swap days. You may email or fax the information to the SAC office. We will enroll your child pending availability.
 
How should I inform you of a schedule change?
If you need to make a change to your child's schedule, please email or fax the information to the SAC office two weeks prior to the date the change will be in effect. A $25 Schedule Change Fee will be assessed.
 
Should I call the SAC site if my child will be absent?
It is VERY IMPORTANT to call when your child will be absent. Please call the SAC site and leave a message on voicemail (all numbers on Site Supervisor Page). Failure to notify the staff of an absence could result in a $10 non-notification fee.
 
When will I receive my first invoice?
Invoices are emailed to parents at the end of August.
 
When are my payments due?twister-sac.jpg
Payments are due the 5th of each month, September through May. Your first month's​ tuition will be due at the time of registration.​
 
What form of payment is accepted?
We accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover, Money Orders, checks and cash. Please do not mail cash. Contact the SAC office for credit card payments that are not automatic EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer).
 
How do I sign up for automatic EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) payment?
The account number you use to pay your registration fee online will be saved for payment of your monthly tuition. By selecting EFT when you register, you authorize SAC to bill your financial institution on the 5th of each month.
 
How do I change the credit card on file for payments?
Please call the SAC Accounting Assistant at 720-561-5974 with the new credit card number and expiration date.
 
The SAC monthly tuition due date falls on the same day as my house payment/rent. Is it possible to make two payments a month without being charged a late fee?
Yes, your payment may be split. Make sure the first payment is in the office prior to the 5th of the month. The second payment should be in the office prior to the 20th, when monthly invoices are sent out.
 
I contribute to a child care reimbursement plan at work and need receipts. Is this possible if I sign up to have my payments submitted electronically?
Yes, our office can email a receipt monthly; please send an email to the SAC Accounting Assistant to request this service. Twice a year you will receive an End-of-Year Statement from our office: The first in January for income tax purposes and the second in late June after the school year has ended.
 
Our family can’t afford to pay full tuition. Do you offer financial assistance?
BVSD SAC is a provider of CCAP (Colorado Child Care Assistance Program). Contact CCAP in your county to see if you qualify for assistance (see the SAC Financial Assistance form for contact information).
 
What is your collections process?
Billing occurs around the 25th of each month.
  1. Payment is due on the 5th of each month.
  2. Any family that has not submitted payment by the 15th will be sent a “Past Due/Termination” Invoice by email.* The correspondence states that the child will be removed from the program if payment is not received. The correspondence includes the last day the child is able to attend.​​

    *Families without email and Spanish-speaking families receive all correspondence by mail.
