After School Programs

The Barksdale PTA provides terrific after-school learning programs for our students.  Registration occurs at the beginning of each semester.  About 200 students participate every year in one or more of these programs. Programs typically last 9 to 13 weeks.



REMINDERS:  If your child’s after-school learning program begins at 2:40 PM or your child is in PASAR, be sure to send a note with your child to have him/her released to the after-school learning program. If not in PASAR, send a snack and drink along, too.



Please do not call the Barksdale School Office if you have questions regarding After School Programs.  Please contact the ASP Coordinator at for assistance.

PASAR is a Plano ISD after-school care program for elementary students in grades K-5.  While PASAR is not a PTA program, you can click here for details, contact information, and guidelines.  Students who are registered with PASAR are welcome to join any PTA sponsored After School Program.  We currently have about 100 students who move between PASAR and after-school learning as appropriate.



There must be one parent present for each session of after-school programs per PISD rules, or that session may be subject to cancellation. Parents are expected to volunteer at least once, but we do understand that may not be possible for a few families. Volunteer sign-ups will be sent out once program registrations are complete.


Email our ASP Parent Volunteer Coordinator at to learn more today.
