Sanger Unified School District

Sanger Unified

The difficult decision to close Sanger Unified campuses through Friday, June 5, 2020 has been made to ensure the safety and health of our students, staff and families. Campuses may be closed but learning will not stop. Sanger Unified schools are continuing to provide education opportunities during the suspension of on-site classes and programs. Our teams are working towards solving many of the logistic and technology issues surrounding distance learning and will keep you updated regularly.

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.


  • To receive priority enrollment in the LEAP after school programs for next year (2020-21) for a foster/homeless youth, apply between April 20th and May 8th, 2020, with Lisa Torres in the LEAP office at the Sanger Unified District Office, at 1905 7th Street, Sanger, California.
  • After May 8th, and once the program is fully enrolled, new foster/homeless youth applications will be placed at the top of the waiting list.

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