Welcome to the Expanded Learning Opportunities Department!
VISION
Ensure that every child achieves academic and social excellence to be career, college, and life ready.
 
MISSION
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.
 
FOUR PROGRAMS
There are four after- school programs available to MPUSD families.

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. Space is limited.

ASA is available at:
  • Crumpton Elementary
  • Del Rey Woods Elementary
  • Highland 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 of babysitting program. 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.)
  • Balancing grade level groups (Grant requirement to maintain the student/staff ratio)
 
Once all spots have been filled, a waiting list 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.

After School Campus Academy (ASCA): A fee-based program for students in grades transitional kindergarten through 5th grades. The same structure and criterion applies as ASA except that students are not invited, but are accepted if we have space and is fee-based. Employee and income driven discounts are available.

ASCA is available at:
  • Monte Vista Elementary
  • Olson Elementary

Stone Soup: A fee-based program offered through the Stone Soup organization. Staff are employees of MPUSD, and supervised by Robin McCall of Stone Soup, under the MPUSD Expanded Learning Opportunities umbrella.

Stone Soup is available at:
