Join us for our 29th
fireside chat. In this chat, Heather Williams from the
California AfterSchool Network is joined by Michael Funk from the
Expanded Learning Division of the California Department of
Education and several members of the California Afterschool
In this chat, we discuss key updates on the education budget,
which has passed out of the Assembly and Senate Subcommittees on
Education Finance, and how they impact our Expanded Learning
Programs, including an increase to the ASES and 21st CCLC Daily
Rate to $10.75 and now a proposed $2.5 Billion in new funding for
an Expanded Learning program similar to ASES. We continue to
celebrate the unprecedented investment in Expanded Learning -
recognizing the essential role of these programs to support our
youth, families, and communities.
We also recognize that there is still the need to ensure these
dollars are structured in such a way to truly leverage the
investment and support our staff and youth. There are more than
enough resources to stabilize existing programs and serve more
We need your help to:
- Support the Senate and Assembly’s proposal for daily rates
(per pupil funding) for state and federally-funded programs.
- Ensure that we don’t leave out middle school and high school
- Build strong and sustainable community partnerships.
