SB 429 (DeSaulnier) increases flexibility for after-school grantees with summer supplemental grants
On April 13, 2011, SB 429 passed the Senate Education Committee by a 7-1 vote. SB 429, as introduced, would increase flexibility for current after-school grantees with summer supplemental grants to operate extended days, by allowing grantees to run either a 3-hour program at $7.50 per child per day or a 6-hour program at $15 per child per day. It would also open summer programs to students throughout the district, and clarify that summer programs may operate at non-school sites in the community.
