Expanded Learning Opportunities Program

The 2023–24 Budget Act provides $4 billion for the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program. The CDE has set aside $5 million of the total appropriation for COE apportionments to provide technical assistance, evaluation, and training services to support program improvement [ECSection 46120(d)(8)]. The total appropriation to eligible school districts and charter schools at Advance is $3,995,000,000.

The 2023–24 entitlement calculation is based on each LEA’s 2022–23 P-2 unduplicated pupil percentage (UPP) and classroom-based ADA in grades TK/K–6 [EC Section 46120(d)(1)]. LEAs eligible for Rate 1 in 2022–23 (UPP greater than or equal to 75.00%) remain eligible for Rate 1 for at least three years even if the prior year UPP is less than 75.00% [EC Section 46120(d)(4)].

  • Rate 1 remains at $2,750 in 2023–24.
  • Rate 2 is $1,802.6618617530 at 2023–24 Advance. The amount for Rate 2 decreased by $251.54 from 2022–23 as the result of the 3.27 percent statewide increase in classroom-based ADA in grades TK/K–6 used in the funding calculation, and no increase to the state budget allocation for the program.
