See the King LEARNS website for updates

To begin this new adventure with LEARNS, you must enroll in the LEARNS Program.  Registration for Fall will be held in  August and at the Welcome Fair.  Spring signup will happen in January.


This page will guide you through the Berkeley LEARNS After School Program enrollment process at King.

Step One: Enrollment Process

Forms and signup

All  – Sports and Classes –  LEARNS Registration forms

Sports Forms

Class Descriptions and Forms

  • Class Descriptions and Forms will be provided to families and is available on the Classes & Activities page

If your student wishes to try out or participate in any sports for this academic year, they MUST return the sports waiver forms completed by your family physician BEFORE try-outs.  All forms MUST be filled out completely before returning them.

These forms MUST be completed front and back.  Please be sure to write your email address legibly as this is our primary form of communication. All forms MUST be completed before coming to registration.  This ensures a smooth process for all.

Step Two: Income Verification

There is a monthly fee to participate in the Berkeley LEARNS programs at King. Our sports teams are part of the Berkeley LEARNS program at King and are NOT a separate program.

Any family paying less than the full-fee rate MUST provide proof of income. Please provide a photocopy of your W-4 from last year or a photocopy of two recent pay stubs for each member of the household who is employed. We will be unable to make copies of these documents during registration.

Step Three: Payment

There is a one-time $15 registration fee per family to enroll your student(s) in LEARNS. Please pay this registration fee online by credit card or submit the payment to the LEARNS office. Monthly fees can be automatically charged to your credit card or automatically deducted from your checking account on the first of each month. If you would prefer a monthly invoice, contact the LEARNS office.

  • Checks payable to “BUSD,” money orders or cash or can be turned in directly to our office in S1 or mailed to:

c/o King Middle School
1781 Rose Street
Berkeley, CA 94703

Enrollment is considered INCOMPLETE without payment. Your student will NOT be able to attend Berkeley LEARNS After School Program until the registration process has been completed.

Enrolled Students Information

You can access your online portal here: berkeleylearns.asapconnected.com/
After logging in, you can update your billing information, update personal info or emergency contacts, add or drop enrollment days, and make manual credit card payments.
Invoices and auto-charges will begin on September 1st, and will continue on the first of each month until June. If your student is a “Sports Only” student, you will be charged monthly at the 3-day rate for the duration of the season.
If there is ever a change in your income, or your student’s schedule, please notify lashondaroquemore@berkeley.net so we can make adjustments to your fees. Please communicate about your family’s needs and let’s find solutions to keep your student here with us!
In order to keep your student safe (and to keep our program running!), we need accurate attendance records. Please stress to your student the importance of signing-in to LEARNS at S1 each day, and then signing-out when they leave. In an emergency, it is vital we know exactly who is present and who has already left campus for the day. Once students leave campus, they are not permitted to return to the LEARNS program.
Every student’s schedule is different and every family has different needs. If your student is enrolled in an enrichment class or sport and will be absent, please contact lashondaroquemore@berkeley.net or call 510-883-6511. Students who are not present for their classes or arrive late without a pass from a teacher, will get a phone call home. If your student will be permanently dropping a class, please notify us ASAP so we will not be expecting them.
Students participating in the After School Program should meet in Room S1 immediately concluding their classes for the school day. Students are not permitted to leave campus and then return for LEARNS. Activities will be available for students to choose each day until enrichment classes begin in mid-September.

If you are picking up your student after 3:00, come directly to the LEARNS Office in S-1 and we will have your student meet you at there.

Please do not hesitate to become a part of this wonderful program! We look forward to a great year together!
