• Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP) Information

    “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 school day and school year.

    Pursuant to Education Code 46120 and effective fall, 2022, MESD offers all unduplicated pupils, in Grades TK-6, in classroom-based instructional programs access to comprehensive after-school and intersessional expanded learning opportunities.  In order to meet the diverse needs of our community and reduce travel, we will be hosting on-site programs at all 5 schools in the district.  

    The program must be free to unduplicated pupils. Unduplicated pupils are students considered in one of the following categories:

    1. English Learners (as identified by the ELPAC)
    2. Foster/Homeless Youth
    3. Qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch


    For questions regarding eligibility, please contact Ralph Crame at rcrame@millbraesd.org.


    All programs must be comprehensive and include academic content, enrichment activities, and a snack that meets nutritional standards. Students will have access to a 9-hour instructional day for the 180 days of the school year and for 9 hours each day on 30 non-instructional days.


    For the 2024-2025 school year, the Expanded Learning Program will be provided at all school sites from August 15, 2024 - May 30, 2025, on all school days, regardless of dismissal time.
