System of Support for Expanded Learning (SSEL) Grant


Due: Friday, April 26, 2024

The SSEL funding supports local educational agencies (LEAs) that serve as the SSEL Lead County Office of Education (COE) to provide field-based technical assistance and support to current programs that receive After School Education and Safety, 21st Century Community Learning Centers and Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P) funding. The regions of the state served by the SSEL Lead COE correspond to the 11 service regions of the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association. As part of the SSEL, the SSEL COEs serve on behalf of the California Department of Education, Expanded Learning Division, in providing support to local expanded learning programs based on regional/county needs.
