CDE’s After School Division Releases New Vision for After School and Summer Programs in California
Message from Michael Funk, Director of the After School Division at CDE

I am pleased to announce that the After School Division (ASD) has completed the first phase of the strategic planning process. The ASD began this strategic planning process back in February, involving both ASD staff and the field in new and innovative ways.  This included the formation of a core planning team and the “Design Team,” comprised of both staff and field representatives.  The initial result of this work is the attached Statement of Strategic Direction that describes the point towards which all subsequent planning and implementation work will be directed.
