ABC EXCELS After School Program
ABC EXCELS INFO
WHAT IS ABC EXCELS - ABC EXCELS encompasses all of our After School Education and Safety (ASES)/Expanded Time to Raise Achievement (EXTRA) program schools and our fee-based Extended Day Programs (EDP). ABC EXCELS is FREE to all students at ASES schools and students who are identified as homeless, foster youth, EL, and/or on free/reduced lunch at the new schools coming on board. Students who do not qualify to be free can still participate under the fee-based structure we formerly had with our EDPs. This program is a result of the state's Expanded Learning Opportunities Program funding authorized by AB130, and we are allotted funds based on our UDP count. We will partner with our Community-Based Organizations Action Youth America (AYA) & YMCA of Greater Long Beach (YMCA) as well as our ABC Child Development Staff (formerly EDP) and site/district staff to provide these expanded learning opportunities to our students.
