Expanded Learning | Kaleidoscope

The Office of Expanded Learning leads Charleston County School Districts' after school efforts (Kaleidoscope). Kaleidoscope is a fee based program that operates using an income based sliding scale for tuition. The office also manages several 21st Century Afterschool Grants, summer programs as well as after school enrichment classes such as chess, dance, art, coding, engineering, foreign language, music, and lacrosse.

Our Mission

Provide high quality after school care in a safe, challenging environment. Our programs provide age-appropriate activities which focus on the physical, social, emotional and educational needs of our students.

How Are We Organized?

Each after school program has one dedicated site coordinator on staff to handle the day-to-day operations and management of the program. Each of our 45 site coordinators reports to one of the four regional program officers.  Our department currently has four regional program officers who oversee all programs. Each regional program officer is responsible for 10-12 after school programs.
