Quick Summary / Abstract:
Background: The BELIEVES (Broadens and Enriches Lives, Instills Educational Values, Encourages Students) after school program has been in operation for 1st through 5th grade students since February 2007. At both Marylin Avenue Elementary and Junction K-8 Schools, the program provides homework assistance, literacy support, academic enrichment, and a daily nutritional meal while providing a safe, productive location for students. The program is offered from the time school dismisses until 6 p.m. every day school is in session. In addition, the Livermore Area Recreation and Park District (LARPD) PAL program provides similar services to Junction 6th through 8th grade students. Both the BELIEVES and the PAL Program are funded through the After School Education and Safety (ASES) grant.
Status LVJUSD continues to enjoy a successful partnership on this project with LARPD since the 2008/2009 school year. LARPD provides staff, training, and supervision within the ratio of one adult to twenty students. Our District will continue to coordinate the program from the organizational and academic perspective and manage the grant, which includes completing and filing State reports.
Fiscal Impact There is no impact to the General Fund. All costs associated with the BELIEVES and PAL programs are paid through grant and categorical funds.
Superintendent's Recommendation: Approve the Service Agreement with LARPD for BELIEVES and PAL Programs.
