Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP)
What is the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP)?
The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP) is a program in all BUSD schools. "Expanded learning" means 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. This program is intended to support qualified TK-6th grade students with free after school, intersession, and summer programs for a minimum of 9 hours of care each day (which includes the full instructional day). To qualify for ELOP, the student must be a part of our Unduplicated Count, which includes Free and Reduced Meal Program, Foster Youth/Homeless, English Learners.
How will it be implemented?
On BUSD's 180 instructional days, we must provide in-person after school expanded learning opportunities that when added to daily instructional minutes are no less than 9 hours of combined instructional time and expanded learning opportunities per instructional day: For at least 30 non-instructional days, during intersessional periods, no less than 9 hours of in-person expanded learning opportunities per day. We will provide ELOP services after school (not before) for the minimum of 9 hours total using BUSD facilities
