Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELOP)
The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP) provides funding for afterschool and summer school enrichment programs for transitional kindergarten through sixth grade.
"Expanded learning" means before school, after school, summer or intercession learning programs that focus on developing the academic, social, emotional and physical needs and interests of learners through hands-on engaging 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.
ELOP is for learners who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals, are experiencing housing instability, or are foster youth. Complete an application for Free & Reduced Lunch here. For those families who have already received a Notification of Approval for Meal Benefits from Alameda Unified School District for the 2022/23 School Year, there is no need to complete the free and reduced application form again. If you are having issues with your application, please send an email to Becky Freeman.
Families will also qualify if they are English Language Learners.
