ELO-P After School Care
The Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELO) Program, ELO-P, provides funding for before school, after school, summer and intersession academic and enrichment programs that focus on developing the academic, social, emotional and physical needs and interests of pupils in grades kindergarten (including transitional kindergarten) through sixth grade through hands-on, engaging learning experiences.
According to the California Department of Education and legislation surrounding this initiative, expanded learning programs are student-centered, results driven, include community partners, and complement, but do not replicate, learning activities in the regular school day and school year.
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
- RAFOS’ Expanded Learning Opportunities Program Plan
