NAPLES, Fla.- Collier County School District plans on making changes to its after school programs. The district will cut the after school program known as Sports C.L.U.B. at some of its schools next year.
In just one week, Erika Donalds, got more than 500 signatures for her online petition.
"I set a goal for 100 signatures and it just completely exploded. I had over 500 signatures now," said Donalds, a Laurel Oak Elementary School parent.
The petition revolves around an after school program called Sports C.L.U.B. It's a mix between academics and athletics.
"They do an amazing job with the kids. My kids beg to got to Sports CLUB. They absolutely love it. It keeps kids active," said Donalds.
The program has been in 11 Collier County elementary schools for years including Laurel Oak Elementary School, but the program will be cut in some of those schools next year.
