The state-funded After School Program, established in 1998, was renamed After School Education and Safety (ASES) with the passage of the After School Education and Safety Act of 2002 (Proposition 49). The passage of Senate Bill 638 in fall 2006 triggered the implementation of Proposition 49, increasing ASES funding from $121 million to $550 million and establishing a continuous appropriation. Every public elementary, middle or junior high, and charter school in California serving students in kindergarten and grades one through nine is eligible for ASES program funding. ASES programs are planned through a collaborative process that includes parents, youths, and representatives of participating public schools; governmental agencies, such as city and county parks and recreation departments; local law enforcement; community organizations; and the private sector. ASES programs are funded according to a renewable three-year grant cycle.
