The Escondido Union School District is committed to actualizing the unlimited potential of every learner. In support of this vision, EUSD is excited to offer a robust, student-centered Expanded Learning Program at all 23 in-person schools. 

 Our Expanded Learning Program utilizes After School Education and Safety (ASES) and Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P) funds to create a single comprehensive program, serving Transitional Kindergarten through 8th-grade EUSD students. A before and after school program is offered at all schools by the providers: Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego, Champions, City of Escondido, Strategic Kids, and YMCA of San Diego County. The before school program operates from 6:30 a.m. until the morning bell rings and the after school program operates from the dismissal bell until 6:00 p.m. These programs are available every school day.

 Each school also has a menu of after school enrichment classes for students to participate. After school enrichment opportunities include: 

  • Dance 

  • STEM

  • Visual Arts

  • Theater

  • Cooking

  • Sports

  • Math and English Language Arts Tutoring

  • Gardening

  • Yoga

  • Creative Writing

  • Music

  • Choir

  • Broadcast

In addition to EUSD certificated staff teaching our enrichment classes, we partner with professional vendors to bring programs to our students. Our 2022/23 partners include:

  • Dance to EvOLvE

  • Mad Science

  • Monart Art School

  • Cre8 Art

  • Treobytes

  • San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum 

  • A Step Beyond

  • Pley Sports

  • Trinity Theatre Company 

  • Center Stage Production

  • CSUSM Mobile Making

  • Boys and Girls Club Sports Leagues

  • More to come!
