Expanded Learning Opportunities Programs (ELO-P)

Expanded Learning Opportunities Programs (ELO-P)

The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P) grant provides funding for afterschool and summer school enrichment programs for transitional kindergarten through sixth grade who qualify for the program because they are an English learner, eligible for a free or reduced-price meal, or are homeless or a foster youth. 
"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.
