Extracurricular activities can be managed as Programs from within Playground's platform through the Administrator Dashboard. If a Program has an additional fee associated with it, Administrators can create (and reuse) itemized charges in the Billing section of the Dashboard.

To create a program:

  • Add out the program information and click "Save." If the "Active Program" toggle is disabled, the Program will not be visible in the app, which may be used when setting up programs before they are active and available to add students to.

You can choose from four different types of fees to add to a program:

  • No fee - for programs that are free

  • Flat fee per check-in - a one-time price for every time the student is checked into this specific program. For example, hot lunch is $5 every time it is ordered.

  • Time based rate - dollar amount per minute of being checked into the program. For example, after school care.

  • Enrollment fee - a one time fee to be enrolled in the program. For example, soccer club.

To enroll a student to a program:

  • Click on the row of the program you wish to add the student to.

  • On the top right, click the Add Students button.

  • Enter the names of all the students you wish to enroll and select them from the dropdown. You can add as many students as you'd like to each program.

    • Note: Even if a student is not enrolled in a specific program, you can still check them into that program on the mobile app. Enrollment is just for your own records.

Now that the Program has been created, you (teachers & administrators) can check students in and out of it with this article.
