After School Education and Safety After School Programs

Expanded Learning Programs

According to the California Department of  Education, “Expanded Learning refers to before and after school, summer, and intersession learning experiences that develop the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs and interests of students. Expanded Learning should be hands-on, engaging, student-centered, results-driven, involve community partners, and complement learning activities in the regular school day/year.” The After School Education and Safety Program is State Funded. The Fullerton School District partners with Community Partners; the City of Fullerton and Boys and Girls Club of Fullerton. Program Locations: Commonwealth, Maple, Orangethorpe, Pacific Drive, Raymond, Richman, Valencia Park, and Woodcrest Elementary Schools. Ladera Vista and Nicolas Junior High Schools. 714 447-7477

Program Elements

Programs must be aligned with, and not be a repeat of, the content of regular school day and other extended learning opportunities. A safe physical and emotional environment, as well as opportunities for relationship building, must be provided. Programs must consist of the two elements below and are expected to work closely with school site principals and staff to integrate both elements with the school's curriculum, instruction, and learning support activities.

An educational and literacy element must provide tutoring and/or homework assistance designed to help students meet state standards in one or more of the following core academic subjects: reading/language arts, mathematics, history, and social studies, or science. A broad range of activities may be implemented based on local student needs and interests.

The educational enrichment element must offer an array of additional services, programs, and activities that reinforce and complement the school’s academic program. Educational enrichment may include but is not limited to, positive youth development strategies, recreation and prevention activities. Such activities might involve the visual and performing arts, music, physical activity, health/nutrition promotion, and general recreation; career awareness and work preparation activities; community service-learning; and other youth development activities based on student needs and interests.  Enrichment activities may be designed to enhance the core curriculum.

The ASES After School Programs offer a complete on-site after-school learning experience and includes the following below:
  • The ASES Programs are grant-funded and at no cost to families.
  • ASES Programs include daily academic support and enrichment opportunities aligned to Common Core State Standards and Expanded Learning Quality Standards.
  • A daily meal (Supper), in collaboration with the Fullerton School District, Nutrition Services Department.
  • Games, contests, music, theatrical performances, arts, sports, and interest clubs are just a few of the exciting enrichment opportunities.
  • Children’s education and safety are our top priorities and that is why our staff will be on-site every school day from the time school lets out until 6:00 pm. This also included minimum/early release days.
  • In order to benefit from our activities, students must attend 5 days a week and remain until 6:00 p.m. (6:10 pm at Ladera Vista).
  • An adult or guardian must pick up children no later than 6:00 p.m. (6:10 p.m. at Ladera Vista Jr. High).  Please speak with the Site Lead regarding our Early-Release Policy.
  • Please note, in consideration of children’s safety, we will dismiss students who walk home at 4:30 p.m. only when the time changes in the fall until the first week in March. During non-Daylight Saving’s Time, students will be dismissed to walk home at 5:30 pm.
Registration forms are available in the school offices and in the ASES Programs. If there is a waiting list, students who register will be placed on the list and called when there is space available. Upon registration, parents will receive a parent information sheet that outlines program specifics.
