LEAP Program Plan


Virtual LEAP

We are very happy to announce that we have extended our after school LEAP program virtually to accommodate distance learning. We are excited to support our students and community as we navigate a very difficult time. Through Virtual LEAP we will be able to help students with homework, while incorporating fun engaging activities.

Program will be available every day beginning Thursday August 20th from 3-6 PM. Please find the flyers of your child's school below for more details.

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
