Dear SUSD Families:
At this time, amid the uncertainties of the Covid 19 virus, to ensure equal access and opportunity for all SUSD families, the LEAP after school programs will be conducting a lottery for 2020-2021 enrollment.  (Please read the attached Policies and Procedures for the LEAP program/lottery.)
Please keep in mind that the LEAP program is working under the assumption that schools will resume as normal in August.  If this is not the case, the LEAP program may be required to rethink how it would operate under new and different circumstances, and would alert parents as soon as possible to any changes in programming required to keep students safe.
In addition, the state’s budget for the ASES (After School Education & Safety) grants which fund our after school programs is uncertain at this time.  We cannot be sure of the exact amount of funding available until summer or perhaps even early fall.  We will operate for now under the assumption that the budget will remain the same.  However, if the budget is drastically reduced by the Governor in the future, we may be forced to accept fewer students into the programs.  
Unfortunately, so many things are uncertain at this time, and we apologize for any inconvenience.  If you have questions, please email me at:  mandy_chacon@sangerusd.net.
In order to be placed in the lottery for the LEAP program for the 2020-21 school year, please complete and “Submit” the Student Lottery Entry Application (the application link is included in this Remind notification) by Friday, June 19th, 2020.
Please make sure that you have included all of the required information in your application.  The lottery will take place on Monday, June 22nd, and we will be contacting you to notify you if your student(s) were accepted by June 26th, through letter and/or phone call.  All parents of students who are accepted into the program will be required to attend a parent orientation at a time/place to be determined, where an enrollment form and emergency card must be filled out.  Your student(s) will not be allowed to attend until all forms have been filled out.
Sincerely,

Mandy Chacon, Coordinator

Support After School Programs

After school programs keep kids safe, help working families and improve academic achievement. More than 28 million children today have parents who work outside the home. Two-thirds of Americans say that it is difficult to find programs in their communities and that not enough programs are available.

Studies show that students involved in after school programs get better grades, attend school more and have improved behavior. They express greater hopes for the future and more interest in school. Teens who participate in after school programs are less likely to skip class, use marijuana and other drugs, smoke, drink alcohol or engage in other risky behaviors.

AB 1567 Homeless & Foster Youth Enrollment


AB 1567 Gives Priority Enrollment in the LEAP After School Program to Homeless and Foster Youth.


Dear Parent/Guardian:

AB 1567 gives priority enrollment in the LEAP After School Program to pupils who are identified as homeless youth and also pupils who are identified as being in foster care.  The bill requires an after school program or a before school program to inform the parent or caregiver of a pupil of the right of homeless and foster children to receive priority enrollment in the after school program, and how to request priority enrollment. The bill also requires the administrators of a program to allow self-certification of the pupil as a homeless youth or a foster youth, and would authorize administrators to obtain this information through the school district liaison designated for homeless children.

IMPORTANT:

  • Please email your foster/homeless student’s name, student ID, and school to: lisa_torres@sangerusd.net before June 19th, 2020, to enroll your foster/homeless student in the after school program next year.  You will receive a return email, confirming your student’s enrollment in the program.

Please contact Lisa Torres for more information at 524-6564.

Sincerely,


Mandy Chacon,
After School Coordinator
