Expanded Learning After School & Summer Programs
What is Expanded Learning?
Grant-Funded Expanded Learning Before and After School Programs
The After School Education and Safety (ASES), 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC), and After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens (ASSETs) Programs are state and federally funded programs. Grants are administered by the California Department of Education and are intended to provide safe and educationally enriching alternatives for children and youth during non-school hours.
The ASES, 21st CCLC, and ASSETs programs are Expanded Learning Programs designed to assist Elk Grove students and families after school and/or during the summer. This involves a partnership between home and school for the academic success of students and for the benefit of the entire family.
There are several components in these grant-funded Expanded Learning Programs:
- Educational and Literacy Component that includes tutoring/ homework assistance in the core subjects (language arts, math, history/ social science, and science)
- Educational Enrichment Component that offers students engaging activities in a variety of areas which may include visual and performing arts; physical activity; career technical education; prevention and intervention strategies; science, technology, engineering, and math; and more
- Nutritious snack or meals offered daily that meet requirements in CA Education Code Section 49430
Programs are designed to assist K through 12th grade students and their families by providing students with a place to study and learn after the school day while supporting family involvement with their student’s education. After school programs have been in operation since 2002 in Elk Grove, and the programs have become part of the District’s educational structure. ASES/21st CCLC/ASSETs Expanded Learning Programs are located at 17 elementary, 3 middle schools, and 3 high schools that serve low income neighborhoods.
All elementary and middle school programs are taught and tutored by paraeducators at a student to staff ratio of 20:1. Additional support may be offered by credentialed teachers, bilingual teaching associates, retired teachers, future teachers from universities and high schools, parents, and community members. The high school programs are taught and tutored by credentialed teachers and paraeducators based on the needs and interests of students and do not have a minimum staffing ratio.
