2019-2020 Online Application

San Diego Unified School District’s (SDUSD) Extended Learning Opportunities Department administers the PrimeTime Extended Day Program (PrimeTime) to elementary and middle school students.  PrimeTime is free to all participating families and operates before and/or after school programs every regular school day. Students are expected to attend the program every day for the full range of hours offered.  Parents/guardians can feel comfortable knowing their child(ren) is not only receiving academic support, but also interacting with peers in a physically and emotionally safe environment.  The PrimeTime team is a collaboration among Extended Learning Opportunities staff, PrimeTime Partner organizations, and other SDUSD departments, programs and individuals.


Your child(ren) must be enrolled during the regular school day at the school to which you are applying for PrimeTime.  All families with children in elementary, middle, or K-8 schools (including transitional kindergarten) interested in participating in PrimeTime during the 2019-2020 school year are required to submit an online application. This includes children currently participating in PrimeTime and children on the wait list.


An application must be completed for each child applying for PrimeTime.  This year’s application will be available online beginning Monday, March 4, 2019 at 6:00 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time). An email address and internet access will be required to create an account to complete an application.  The application must be completed and submitted online. Click to view sample application.  

The PrimeTime Partner at your child's school will hold a PrimeTime Application parent informational meeting to review the online application process. Click to view the schedule.

You may access the application through a mobile device such as a cell phone or tablet with internet connection.  If you need internet access you may visit a public library or SDUSD’s Extended Learning Opportunities Department located at 2441 Cardinal Lane, Bldg. A (92123) during regular business hours.


All information provided on the application is subject to verification. Falsifying or omitting any of the information may disqualify the applicant from receiving PrimeTime services.


It is anticipated that the demand for PrimeTime services will exceed the program capacity at most schools; therefore, it is extremely important that the application be completed and submitted by the initial application timeline.  Applicants are accepted into the program based on the rating system listed on the following page, up to the capacity for each school’s program.


Applications will be available online beginning Monday, March 4, 2019 at 6:00 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time) and must be completed and submitted online by Friday, April 12 2019 at 9:59 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time) to be included in the initial review and enrollment process.  Applications faxed, e-mailed, mailed, or hand delivered will not be accepted. 


Parents/guardians who complete and submit the application within the initial application timeline will be notified of the status of their application no later than Friday, June 14, 2019, via email.  Notification will inform families of whether their child has been accepted to participate, placed on a wait list, or not eligible for the before and/or after school 2019-2020 PrimeTime Program.  Acceptance into the before school program does not ensure acceptance into the after school program and acceptance into the after school program does not ensure acceptance into the before school program.
