Funding Description

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

Eligible Applicants Institutions of higher education, local educational agencies, nonprofit organizations, other organizations or agencies

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.
Other 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.
