Clovis Unified School District After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program

 

The Clovis Unified School District (CUSD) After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program is the result of the 2002 voter-approved initiative, Proposition 49. This proposition amended California Education Code (EC) sections 8482–8482.55 to expand and rename the former Before and After School Learning and Safe Neighborhood Partnerships Program. The ASES Program funds the establishment of local after school education and enrichment programs. These programs are created through partnerships between schools and communities to provide literacy support, academic enrichment, and safe, constructive alternatives for students in kindergarten through grade nine (K–9). Funding is designed to provide eligibility to all elementary and middle schools throughout California that submit applications to establish before and after school programs meeting the requirements defined in the EC.

 

Purpose, Objectives and Elements

 

The ASES Program is intended to provide literacy, academic enrichment, and safe constructive alternatives for students. ASES is an extension of the school day in which literacy and academic enrichment elements are offered.  Studies suggested participation in the ASES Program increases students’ attachment to their schools, improves academics, and provides a safe environment for students.  The ASES program is aligned with the regular school day core program.  Educational Literacy and Enrichment is an important component of the program’s academic support:


Educational Literacy offers homework assistance and academic support to help students meet state standards in reading/language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science.  A broad range of activities are based on students’ needs and interests.

 

Enrichment provides a variety of additional programs and activities that support and compliment the school’s academic program.  This includes positive youth development strategies and prevention activities that may utilize visual and performing arts, community service-learning, recreation and physical activity, health/nutritional promotion, career awareness and work preparation activities based on student needs and interests.

 

Program Structure

 

The program offers homework assistance, snacks, enrichment activities and recreational opportunities in a safe environment for students.  ASES Program activities are based on the elements provided above.  The daily schedule includes a snack based on state nutritional guidelines.  ASES program structure at each school site may vary depending on the need of the school community. 

 

 

Registration and Attendance

 

ASES registration at each school site may vary depending on the target group and site community. *Please check with your school site for registration details.

 

The intent of the ASES grant is students will participate in the program for the full range of hours offered each day. Minimum attendance is one-half of the offered program hours with students having an approved early release form signed by the parents. Early Release form is required by the state in order to fund students who meet attendance requirements, as outlined in the grant. Check with your child's school regarding their ASES attendance policy.
