​​What is Expanded Learning?​

According to the Website: California's Expanded Learning these programs are an integr​al part of young people's education, engaging them in year-round learning opportunities that prepare them for college, career, and life.

Expanded Learning refers to before and after school, summer, and intersession learning experiences that develop the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs and interests of students. Expanded Learning opportunities should be hands-on, engaging, student-centered, results-driven, involve community partners, and complement learning activities in the regular school day/year.
