Take Action Today: Governor’s May Revise Budget
Sign On Letter Due Today by 1:00 PM
Budget decisions are moving quickly and that the Assembly and Senate Budget Subcommittees will be voting on education proposals on Tuesday, May 25.
The Governor’s budget proposal makes a historic commitment to grow afterschool and summer programs in the most under-resourced communities. However, action is needed to stabilize our existing expanded learning system with adequate daily rates, make sure we don’t leave out our middle and high school students, and ensure the engagement of community partners.
Add your organization to the sign-on letter (http://bit.ly/MayReviseSOL), by sending your information by 1:00 PM Monday 5/24.

Join us for our 28th fireside chat. In this chat, Heather Williams from the California AfterSchool Network and Michael Funk from the Expanded Learning Division of the California Department of Education are joined by Jennifer Peck of the Partnership for Children and Youth.
In this chat, we discuss key updates on the budget that impact our Expanded Learning Programs, including the Governor’s proposal for $1 Billion in funding for a new program and the ASES Daily Rate.
We 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.
Stay tuned for a sign-on letter, social media language, and other tools to help elevate your voice!
