The Brownsburg Community School Corporation will take over the Town of Brownsburg Parks before and after school program, B.A.S.E., beginning July 31, 2024, for the 2024-2025 school year.
The program, available to all elementary school students, has experienced tremendous success and growth, exceeding the Parks Department's capacity to manage it effectively. The Town of Brownsburg and the Brownsburg Community School Corporation are working closely to ensure the transition is smooth and successful for the existing B.A.S.E. staff and families.
"Although we have enjoyed serving families and supporting our school system, we recognize that the youth services programs have outgrown our capacity and resources," said Brownsburg Town Council President Travis Tschaenn. "Our Brownsburg School system is the best in the state, and the transition will expand the program's reach further, providing more resources and opportunities for our incredible and dedicated staff and the community."
The Brownsburg Community School Corporation plans to rename the before and after school program to BOOST, Bulldogs Out of School Time, and transition as many B.A.S.E. staff members as possible to support the new program.
"Brownsburg Schools is grateful to the hardworking B.A.S.E. staff for caring for our students before and after school," said Assistant Superintendent Kat Jessup. "As we launch BOOST with the 24-25 school year, we hope that many of them will join us as we continue to offer this option to families through Brownsburg Schools."
The Parks Department will maintain the program through the end of the 2023-2024 school year and will still offer summer camp. More details about the transition will be announced by the Brownsburg Community School Corporation in the coming months.
