    The purpose of Beyond the Bell is to support student learning & development in a safe and supportive environment after school. Studies show that students who regularly attend structured afterschool activities have higher achievement and attendance rates.

    HOW to APPLY:

    Enrollment forms will be mailed to all students in grades 8-10. Enrollment forms will also be distributed in all English classes for Juniors & Seniors. Students attending the Coshocton County Career Center may pick up enrollment forms from Mr. Crilow or Mr. Nagle in the Guidance Office. The grant stipulates we can serve up to 60 students so if applications exceed that number a waiting list will be created. If you have questions or concerns regarding the Beyond the Bell Afterschool Program you should contact Peggy Ball, Site Coordinator by calling 740-545-6354 or send an email to peggy.ball@ridgewood.k12.oh.us.
