Expanded Learning Opportunities

  1. Rio Schools
  2. Expanded Learning Opportunities

The California Department of Education under Assembly Bill 86 better known as AB86, will allocate funds to school districts to provide expanded learning opportunities for students. In order to receive the funding, districts will need to develop a district wide plan. We are asking for your support by providing us feedback and completing the Rio School District Expanded Learning and Opportunities (ELO Grant) Survey on programs and/or services we should fund. The Expanded Learning Opportunities Grant Plan focus is to develop or expand learning recovery opportunities for one or more of the following groups of students: Low Income, English Learners, Homeless or Foster Youth, Students with Disabilities, Students at Risk of Abuse/Neglect or Exploitation, Disengaged Students, and/or Students who are Below Grade Level.

If you have any questions re: the ELO Grant,  please contact Dr. Sonya Mercado or Ms. Veronica Rauschenberger in the Educational Services Department (805) 485-3111.

Listed below are areas of focus for the ELO Grant Funds Supplemental Instruction and/or Strategies:

  1. Extending instructional learning time
  2. Accelerating progress to close learning gaps through the implementation, expansion, or enhancement of learning supports
  3. Integrated student supports to address other barriers to learning
  4. Community learning hubs that provide students with access to technology, high-speed internet, and other academic supports 
  5. Additional academic services for students
  6. Training for school staff on strategies to engage students and families in addressing students’ social-emotional health and academic needs
