In 2015, the City of Andalusia expanded its recreational and leisure activities past the realm of just sports to offer the children of this community a broader array of activities. Through the A.P.P.L.E. out-of-school-time program, after school and summer activities are available for all children, grades K -8, who currently attend Andalusia City Schools. Mayor Earl Johnson and Superintendent Ted Watson forged a partnership to provide the very best program for the youth of Andalusia. Mayor Johnson and current Superintendent Dr. Daniel Shakespeare are excited to continue the A.P.P.L.E. program.
The A.P.P.L.E. after school program follows the Andalusia City Schools calendar. There is a $50 fee per child per semester for the after school portion of the program and a $40 fee per child for the summer program, which runs from the first Monday through the last Friday in June.
Since its inception, the program has been immensely popular. Because there is limited availability, the program is filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Applications are available at the Woodson Center and can be completed on site.
