Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (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 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.
California Education Code (EC) Section 46120 amended by AB 181 (Chapter 52, Statutes of 2022) and AB 185 (Chapter 571, Statutes of 2022).
The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP) will be available as an option for eligible RBUSD Transitional Kindergarten (TK) - 6th grade students, at no cost to families. The ELOP program is made available to “unduplicated pupils” (Homeless/Foster Youth, Free/Reduced Lunch, English learners), per California Assembly Bill 130. RBUSD’s eight elementary schools, as well as 6th grade at Adams and Parras Middle Schools, will host this expanded learning program that will run from dismissal until 5:30 p.m. each school day.
The ELOP program is a partnership between the Redondo Beach Unified School District (RBUSD) and an organization named Right At School. Right At School will provide the staffing and a daily program focused on academic support and enrichment, interventions, social-emotional wellness and support, and more!
