Expanded Learning Opportunities ProgramGeneral information regarding the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program derived from Assembly Bill 130.
The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P) provides funding for afterschool and summer school enrichment programs for transitional kindergarten through sixth grade.
“Expanded learning” means before school, after school, summer, or intersession learning programs that focus on developing the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs and interests of pupils through hands-on, engaging learning experiences. It is the intent of the Legislature that expanded learning programs are pupil-centered, results driven, include community partners, and complement, but do not replicate, learning activities in the regular schoolday and school year.
The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program is authorized by Item 6100-110-0001 of the 2021–22 Budget Act (Senate Bill 129, Chapter 69, Statutes of 2021), and Assembly Bill (AB) 130, Chapter 44, Statutes of 2021, as amended by AB 167, Chapter 252, Statutes of 2021.
The California Department of Education (CDE) has published Principal Apportionments for the ELO-P for Fiscal Year 2021–22. The purpose of these funds is for school district and charter school afterschool and summer school enrichment programs for grades kindergarten through sixth grade (TK/K-6) and as described in California Education Code Section 46120. The Principal Apportionments are available on the Principal Apportionment Section for ELO-P webpage.
If you have any questions regarding this apportionment, please contact the Principal Apportionment Section by email at PASE@cde.ca.gov.
Local educational agencies must operate the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program pursuant to the requirements in California Education Code Section 46120, including the development of a program plan. The program plan needs to be approved by the Local Educational Agency's (LEA) Governing Board in a public meeting and posted on the LEA's website.
