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:
Math and English Language Arts Tutoring
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
Monart Art School
San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum
A Step Beyond
Trinity Theatre Company
Center Stage Production
CSUSM Mobile Making
Boys and Girls Club Sports Leagues
More to come!
EUSD’s Expanded Learning Program is available to students in TK through 8th grade who attend in-person schools, and enrollment is subject to capacity. Interested families must complete the EUSD Expanded Learning Program Interest Form (2023-24 Interest Form - Before/After School Programs). If demand exceeds capacity, students will be added to the waitlist until space is available.
There is no cost to families to participate in any of EUSD’s before or after school programs or classes.
All programs/classes that happen before or after school are part of Expanded Learning and the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P) and After School Education and Safety (ASES) grant.
All programs that support students during the day or for special populations such as GATE, are part of Extended Learning, Intervention and Enrichment.
