As part of the  Assembly Bill (AB) 86 COVID-19 relief package $4.6 billion will be distributed to LEAs through the Expanded Learning Opportunities Grant, which can be used for extended instructional learning time, learning supports, health, counseling mental health and social emotional learning, community learning hubs, supports for credit deficient pupils, and training for school staff.

The May 5th event is not just for Expanded Learning practitioners, it is meant to support all K-12 practitioners who can utilize the AB 86 ELO Learning Recovery Grants to promote the learning and well-being of our students in all settings in and out of school. All California Educators, from all sectors, are invited and highly encouraged to attend: K-12 Educators, Educational Leadership (COE and LEA), Principals, Superintendents, Student Support Services, Data & Assessment, Multilingual Learners Educators, Fiscal Leaders, Nutrition Services, Community-Based Organizations, Expanded Learning Programs, Technology Services, Special Education, etc. 

Please access the ELO Convening webpage to register and for updated event details as we have begun posting workshops and keynote sessions. 

It is highly recommended to attend as a team to maximize this opportunity – if you haven’t yet, we encourage you to invite your colleagues and educational partners to register for the event as well.

We look forward to having you join us next week!
