Three bills that positively impact after-school programs in California have been passed by the Legislature and forwarded to the Governor for his consideration:
- AB 434 (Block) clarifies the direct service status of after-school site coordinators who spend at least 85% of their work hours at the program site.
- AB 2178 (Torlakson) permits after-school grantees to share required evaluation data with sub-contracted providers, and requires that the CDE to aggregate this data into statewide reports that link with the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System.
- SB 798 (DeSaulnier) sets aside 15% of any new federal after-school funding for summer programming.
Please consider sending letters to the Governor urging his signature of these three bills. Copy the following templates to your agency letterhead, then sign and fax them to both the Governor at (916) 558-3160, and Secretary of Education Bonnie Reiss at (916) 323-3753.
