Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELO) Grant Plan
On March 5, 2021, Governor Newsom signed into law Assembly Bill (AB) 86 COVID-19 relief package. The California Legislature provided $6.6 billion in the AB 86 COVID-19 relief package, including $2 billion for In-Person Instruction (IPI) Grants and $4.6 billion for Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELO) Grants.
To be eligible for funding, the District must implement a learning recovery program, that at a minimum, provides supplemental instruction, support for social and emotional well-being, and, to the maximum extent permissible under the guidelines of the United States Department of Agriculture, meals and snacks to specified student groups, as defined in Education Code Section 43522, who have faced adverse learning and social-emotional circumstances.
ELO Grants shall be expended only for any of the following purposes: extending instructional learning time, accelerating progress to close learning gaps, integrated pupil supports, community learning hubs, supports for credit deficient pupils, additional academic services, and training for school staff. The District has engaged, planned, and collaborated on program operation with community partners and expanded learning programs, and leveraged existing behavioral health partnerships and Medi-Cal billing options, in the design and implementation of services.
