Welcome to the Expanded Learning Opportunities Department!
Ensure that every child achieves academic and social excellence to be career, college, and life ready.
Empower students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become highly effective, culturally diverse citizens, through the daily use of dynamic hands-on academic and social enrichment activities.

There are four after- school programs available to MPUSD families.

1. After School Academy (ASA): A free, grant-based program and available for students in transitional kindergarten through 8th grade. Students are invited to the program based on teacher referral for academic or social need. There is no open enrollment. Space is limited.

ASA is available at:
  • Crumpton Elementary
  • Del Rey Woods Elementary
  • Marina Vista Vista Elementary
  • Martin Luther King Elementary
  • Ord Terrace Elementary
  • Los Arboles Middle
  • Seaside Middle
Enrollment is based on the following criteria by invitation only (no open enrollment):
  • Homeless/Foster (State mandated requirement)
  • Teacher Recommendation (Grant requirement based on Academic or Social/Emotional needs)
  • Siblings (Grant plan to keep the family unit together)
  • Prior Enrollment in ASA* (Grant plan to keep consistency for the student and family)
  • Prior good attendance, participation, and behavior in ASA. (ASA is not a childcare or babysitting program.) The grant requires a comprehensive program, including Academic Support, Enrichment Activities, and Nutrition opportunities, and to ensure that spots are filled by students that are benefiting from what is offered. Students are expected to attend everyday they are in school and stay until the end of the program day.
  • Balancing grade level groups (Grant requirement to maintain the student/staff ratio)
Once all spots have been filled by referred students, a waiting list of referred students by grade level will be initiated. Waiting lists do not roll over from one year to the next. NOTE: There is no guarantee that once a student attended the program they will automatically be enrolled in the program for the following year. Special Education students are accepted and an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meeting may be required prior to enrolling to be sure we are adequately trained to meet the needs of the student.

2. After School Campus Academy (ASCA): A fee-based program for students in grades transitional kindergarten through 8th grades.  Students are enrolled pending space availability at each site. A waitlist will be generated and families notified once space becomes available. Reduces rates are available for children of MPUSD Employees and students that receive free or reduced lunch.

ASCA is available at:
  • Monte Vista Elementary
  • Olson Elementary
  • La Mesa Elementary
  • Marshall Elementary
