Each school that elects to establish a child supervision program shall apply to the State Department of Education for a grant for each program of up to four thousand dollars ($4,000). Grants for the new programs established pursuant to this section shall be allocated to programs that meet both of the following requirements:

(a) Have conducted a needs assessment of the local community.

(b) Provide for a viable program plan.

The grants may be used for any of the following: one month’s staffing cost, snacks, and the purchase of sports equipment, games, computers, and supplies as indicated by the budget submitted by the district. Once the program is operating, the district shall maintain the program through the fees charged the parents and guardians of the children in the program. The fee may be the same for each child regardless of family income or the number of hours a child participates in the program so that the self-supporting nature of the program is assured. School programs shall seek funding from local business, community, and philanthropic organizations to ensure that no needy child who desires to participate shall be denied the opportunity to participate because of inability to pay the fee. No one who desires to participate in the program shall be denied the opportunity to participate because of inability to pay the fee. The state department shall fund up to 250 programs.
