The Student Enrichment Program (SEP) develops, supervises, and administers all before and after school programs for CSA District.

For CSA Elementary, that includes Student Connection (licensed child care), Short Watch (extended carpool), After School Enrichments and Athletics. Participation in all SEP-run activities requires payment of an annual, non-refundable, one-time, one-per-family registration fee. Individual program fees may also apply.
