The Expanded Learning Opportunities program (ELO) was established beginning in the 2021-22 fiscal year and provides funding for afterschool and summer school enrichment programs for transitional kindergarten through sixth grade. The ELO Program was established by Assembly Bill (AB) 130, Chapter 44, Statutes of 2021, as amended by AB 167, Chapter 252, Statutes of 2021. 
“Expanded learning” means before school, 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. It is the intent of the Legislature that expanded learning programs are pupil-centered, results driven, include community partners, and complement, but do not replicate, learning activities in the regular schoolday and school year.
Gateway Community Charters currently has after-school programs operating at all of our elementary and middle schools. These ELO based programs are funded through a California Department of Education After-School Education and Safety Program (ASES) grant.
