VCUSD Thanks Community for
Their Support of our After School Programs
Vallejo City Unified School District staff, parents, community partners and students would like to thank you, the Vallejo community, for voting to strengthen and enrich our current afterschool programs. As you may know, Vallejo citizens serving on the Spanish-speaking, Education Programs and Services, and Economic Development Sub-Committees for Participatory Budgeting, developed projects that would enhance technology (one-on-one iPads) and sports staffing for our 14 schools with existing ASES programs. These schools are:Beverly Hills Elementary,Cooper Elementary, Dan Mini Elementary,Federal Terrace Elementary, Highland Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, Patterson Elementary, Steffan Manor Elementary,Widenmann Elementary, Loma Vista Environmental Science Academy, Mare Island Health & Fitness Academy, Franklin Middle, Hogan Middle, and Solano Middle.
We appreciate the understanding that afterschool programs provide opportunities for students to get academic support and participate in enrichment activities like Leadership Club, Cooking Club, arts, music and sports. These programs are also designed to keep students safe during afterschool hours.
Carol Lewis, Afterschool Programs Coordinator, and our afterschool site coordinators are to be commended for doing such an excellent job and for their commitment to continuing to build model afterschool programs. Again, we thank the Vallejo community for the support and look forward to next steps. For further information, please visit ASES Afterschool Programs.
The Vallejo City Council will vote on the proposals at their December 8, 2015 meeting.
