ASES: After School Program

Expanded Learning Afterschool Program
What is ASES?
The After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program is a state and federally funded program. 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 program is Expanded Learning Programs designed to assist Elk Grove students and families after school. This involves a partnership between home and school for the academic success of students and for the benefit of the entire family.
Program Components:
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 6th 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.
When Are Classes Held?
The ASES Program is open every day school is in session from the end of the regular school day until 6:00 p.m. Pre-registration for ASES is required.
