ASD Strategic Planning Update – Release of the Strategic Plan
A Message from the CDE


I am happy to announce A Vision for Expanded Learning in California, the 2014-2016 Strategic Plan developed by the After School Division in collaboration with the field will be released to the public next Tuesday, January 28th, at the Before and After School Advisory Committee meeting.

I believe the vision laid out in this document will serve as a strong roadmap to guide the work of both the After School Division and our colleagues throughout the state. This document is the culmination of a truly innovative and collaborative planning process between After School Division staff and a highly diverse group of field representatives. Equally important to the document, another key result of this process, is the new working relationship between CDE and the field. These new collaborative relationships will strengthen future work and benefit all levels of the Expanded Learning system.

For those of you who may be in the area we welcome you to join us for the presentation to the Before and After School Advisory Committee.  Meeting details are below:
