Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Why was Right At School selected?

A:  Right at School, as part of our agreement, is also able to align their enrichment activities and academic supports with Edmonds School District. They provide extensive training to their staff, who will come from our community, and have offered to pay their staff to attend the professional development the District offers teachers throughout the year. Additionally, they have agreed to integrate our curricula and school-based behavior expectations into their programs so that children have a seamless transition from childcare to the classroom. Right at School offers flexible pricing options with no waitlists. They will offer scholarships and reduced rates for families who need financial support.

 
 

Q: Will Edmonds School District make a profit from partnering with Right at School?

A: No. We currently ask our before and after school providers to pay a rental fee to use our space. This fee covers the cost of cleanup and utilities. We made an agreement to not charge Right at School rent; instead, they are providing us a percentage of their revenue to cover the cost of maintenance and utilities. Any funding that is left over, if any, will be returned to families via scholarships. Edmonds School District will not be making any profit from Right at School.
