How to Apply
For the Current School Year
After school begins in the fall, all programs will accept waiting list applications, as space is available, for the school year already in process. Please contact the individual BASP program to check availability.
For the Next School Year
Both the re-enrollment and waitlist application process occurs in the winter/spring before the upcoming school year. The BASP application process for the 2023-2024 school year begins in March.
February: Re-enrollment (current families)
Families who are currently enrolled in BASP will have the month of February to re-enroll their child(ren) for the next school year and register any incoming siblings.
March: Waitlist Application (new families)
BASP programs will accept waiting list applications from new families. A lottery list will be generated from this pool of applicants. To apply for the waiting list:
- Complete the Coralville BASP Waiting List application (PDF), and
- Return it to the program site or the Coralville Recreation Center, 1506 8th Street
April: Available Spots Announced
Any spots available after the programs complete re-enrollment will be offered to families on the lottery list*. If the program is full or fills up before a family is able to get into a program, the child(ren) will remain on the lottery list.
*Each February, the lottery waiting list is wiped clean. If a program is not able to offer a spot to all children on the lottery waiting list before starting the next school year's re-enrollment, then you will need to reapply for the lottery waiting list for the upcoming school year.
