CAN Policy Newsletter – Advocacy is All Year Long!
October 3, 2019
It’s October, the fall season has officially begun, and we are weeks away from the 20th Annual Lights On Afterschool celebration, which is a wonderful reminder that we can and should advocate for after school all year round! Now is the time to engage your communities and elected officials, and remind them how essential our programs are to supporting children and youth all across California.
The California Department of Education (CDE) Expanded Learning Division (EXLD) is excited to launch the new Sustainability Work Group! The purpose of the Sustainability Work Group is to support the EXLD in identifying, documenting, and sharing promising sustainability practices with the Expanded Learning field.
Rally to save after school!
Join us March 9-10, 2020 in Sacramento for the 16th Annual California Afterschool & Summer Challenge.
Stand with hundreds of students, families, and afterschool providers to demand adequate support for publicly-funded programs. Help us ensure the Governor and legislature keep children learning and parents working! Learn more.
On Sept. 19 the House of Representatives passed a continuing resolution that will fund the government through Nov. 21. What does this mean for federal afterschool funding?
