NOTE: The application due date for this program has passed.

The 21st Century High School After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens (ASSETs) Program provides incentives for establishing before- and after-school enrichment programs that partner schools and communities to provide academic support; safe, constructive alternatives for high school students; and assistance in passing the California High School Exit Exam. Programs may operate after school only, or after school and any combination of before school, weekends, summer, intersession, and vacation. Each program must consist of three elements: academic assistance, educational enrichment, and family literacy services.

Eligibility
Criteria
Federal legislation mandates that school eligibility be based on requirements for Title I Schoolwide Programs. Competitive priority is to be given to applications serving schools identified as in need of improvement (Section 1116). To meet the competitive priority, an application must be jointly submitted by local educational agencies (LEAs) receiving funds under Title I, Part A, and community-based organizations or other public or private, entities. State legislation gives priority to high schools whose most recent score on the Academic Performance Index (API) ranks the school in the lowest three deciles.

Eligibility
Considerations
Eligible applicants include LEAs (school districts, county office of education, and direct-funded charter schools), community-based organizations, cities, counties, public or private entities (including faith-based organizations or private schools), or a consortium of two or more such organizations or agencies.
