Advancing OST Policy
The California AfterSchool Network’s role in advancing OST policy is to provide data, develop field engagement strategy, participate in the CA3, and advocate for policy and funding.
In this section you can:
- Access the Expanded Learning database (coming soon)
- Stay current on state and federal legislative and budget information
- Find research and resources to advocate for after school in CA
The database is currently under construction.
When live, you will have access to Expanded Learning funding amounts and the estimated number of students served at a school site, school district, region, county, and state levels, as well as by CA and Federal Legislative District. Initially this will only include ASES and 21st CCLC Funding. ELO-P funding will eventually be added. For more information contact Leslye Lugo: email@example.com
Policy impacting Expanded Learning programs, and ultimately the children, youth, and families of California is shaped by the California State Legislature and California Executive Branch, most prominently the California Department of Education and the California Governor’s Office. Through legislation, budgets, and policies these entities set priorities for how the state invests resources to support these programs.
