After school programs (ASP) operate at all eight school campuses in the Rio School District. The Rio School District provides programming with the support of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme. Funding for the programs comes from the California After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program. Enrichment opportunities include homework assistance, arts, music, sports, and recreation. Program staff provides homework assistance during the daily “Power Hour”, and the after school program staff and Rio School District staff coordinate to provide academic intervention. After school site supervisors and youth development professionals meet the requirements of No Child Left Behind (NCLB), and the after school program maintains a 20:1 student to staff ratio. The program operates each day that students are in school and runs until 6 p.m. The State of California requires participating students to meet the attendance requirements as outlined in the application packet.
Enrollment is open throughout the year, depending on availability. Priority is given to students at risk of not meeting state and district benchmarks. Available spots, after targeted students are identified, are available to students on a “first come, first served” system. To apply, complete the application below and submit to the after school program site supervisor at your student’s school.
