Advancing OST Policy
Advancing Out-of-School Time 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
Expanded Learning Database
The database is currently under construction.
The database is currently only available in Beta mode with no guarantees data is accurate. If you are interested in testing the database and providing feedback to CAN please contact Heather at 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.
Afterschool Can Play a Role!
The U.S. census does more than just count us. Its impacts are far-reaching, shaping decisions about the services, businesses, and utilities that everyone relies on – including afterschool programs.
