Expanded Learning Programs Office

The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) Expanded Learning Programs Office assists in the development and continuous quality improvement of before-school, after-school, and summer expanded learning programs. Services align with the California Expanded Learning Quality Standards and support the K–12 System of Support in educating “the whole child.”

The SCOE Expanded Learning Programs Office is one of 16 statewide Regional Technical Assistance providers, offering training, coaching, mentoring, and more. It provides technical assistance to the 10-county Capital Service Region (Region 3): Alpine, Colusa, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba. (Sierra County is part of the region, but currently has no expanded learning programs.)

Funding for Expanded Learning

Expanded learning programs are funded by After School Education and Safety (ASES) and 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) grants through the Expanded Learning Division of the California Department of Education (CDE).

The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P), authorized by Assembly Bill 130, also provides funding for after-school and summer school enrichment programs for transitional kindergarten through sixth grade.
