After School Programs

AfterSchoolPrograms-Header

After school programs (ASP) operate at all nine school campuses in the Rio School District. Funding for the programs at Rio del Mar, Rio del Norte, Rio del Valle, Rio Lindo, Rio Plaza, Rio Real, and Rio Rosales comes from the California After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program. The Rio School District provides ASES programming in collaboration with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme. Enrichment opportunities include homework assistance, arts, music, physical fitness, and recreation. Program staff provides homework assistance daily, and the after school program staff and Rio School District staff coordinate to provide academic intervention. Each ASES site has an academic liaison who is a credentialed educator who works closely with after school staff to support students’ academic needs. 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 homeless and foster youth and students at risk of not meeting state and district benchmarks. To apply, complete the application below and submit to the after school program site coordinator at your child’s school.
