Updates on Governor’s Budget Proposal
Fireside Chat: May 21, 2021
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!
