The YEP offers Expanded Learning Opportunities to students before and after school as well as during the summer! (As well as fall recess for students from the year-round elementary schools too!)

YEP serves students in grades TK-12 at 27 schools in the district.  We offer a range of educational, enrichment, and recreational programs at each school and level.

YEP gives students opportunities for homework/academic support and to expand their learning through fun recreational, athletic, and educational activities.  Students grow socially, emotionally and physically, build community and belonging, develop confidence and resilience, and have fun in a safe supportive environment.

The Youth Enrichment Program is funded by  a number of grants including the After School Education and Safety Program (ASES), the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC), 21st Century High School After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens Programs (ASSETs), and the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P) as well as by parent fees at the elementary level.

We are very excited to have your child join the YEP at their school!  We hope that YEP will be a very positive and enjoyable experience for you and your child.

Expanded Learning Opportunities Program

The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P) provides funding for before & after school as well as summer school enrichment programs for transitional kindergarten through sixth grade.  ELO-P funds are allocated by the California Department of Education to provide additional learning opportunities during “out-of-school” time for students who qualify in the District’s unduplicated pupil percentage (UPP).  This includes student’s eligible for free or reduced priced meals, English language learners, and children in foster care.  In June 2022, the Board of Trustees approved the District’s three (3) year plan to implement ELO-P with the District’s Youth Enrichment Program (YEP!).
