The State of Afterschool in California
Dr. William Ellerbee, Jr., Deputy Superintendent, Student Support & Special Services Branch, California Department of Education; Michael Funk, Director, After School Division, California Department of Education, Sacramento, CA

Join Dr. Ellerbee and Michael Funk as they discuss California's vision for expanded learning. Improving the impact and reach of California's expanded learning programs represents a major priority for State Superintendent Tom Torlakson and the California Department of Education. To help further realize the potential of California's investment in these program areas, over two years ago, the After School Division was established and a collaborative strategic planning process was launched. This interactive presentation and discussion will share the final strategic plan and next steps along with information on other collaborative efforts by the After School Division.

Let's Talk: Voices of a Community that Values Learning for All
Lucy Friedman, President, TASC, New York, NY; Belma Johnson, Vice President, Communications & Public Affairs, LA's BEST, Los Angeles, CA; Patrick Duhon, Director of Expanded Learning, Providence Public Schools/Providence After School Alliance, Providence, RI; Jodi Grant, Executive Director, Afterschool Alliance, Washington, D.C.

Education is everyone's job and we are all partners in making certain all young people are successful learners. How do we go about this? Whether your perspective is to extend the learning day or expand learning opportunities outside of school time, or a hybrid of both perspectives - let's talk about it.

Join us for a provocative conversation about broadening our ideas and valuing perspectives on where, when, and how learning happens - and what the future holds for out-of-school time and our work as educators.

The Local Control Funding Formula and How You Can Get Involved
Steve Amick, Director of Policy and Partnerships, THINK Together, Santa Ana, CA

California’s new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) will significantly increase resources for school districts with high concentrations of high-need students, while broadening their flexibility to utilize those resources to increase and improve services to English learners, foster youth, and those eligible for free and reduced-price meals. Augmenting expanded learning time programs by serving additional students, extending services into the summer, or improving program quality, is a viable strategy for helping to meet LCFF accountability guidelines. School districts are currently engaging parents and community members in the development of their Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs), so now is the time to learn about the process and how you can get involved.

Something to Say: Success Principles for Afterschool Art Programs
Denise Montgomery, Director, Next Level SMG, San Diego, CA

Tweens can be elusive – successful programs understand what they want. Join us as we discuss the findings of the new Wallace Foundation-commissioned report, Something to Say: Success Principles for Afterschool Arts Programs from Urban Youth and Other Experts. The report suggests 10 principles that afterschool arts education providers can follow to attract and retain urban tweens. These recommendations are based on direct interviews with tweens and teens, parents, and practitioners.
