          STAFF COMMENTS: SUSPENSE FILE.  AS PROPOSED TO BE AMENDED.
          
          Proposition 49 (2002) increased funding for before and after  
          school programs and renamed them the After School Education and  
          Safety (ASES) program.  ASES programs are partnerships between  
          school districts and local community resources and provide  
          enriching before or after school activities for pupils from  
          kindergarten through 9th grade.  Approximately $547 million has  
          been appropriated for ASES for the 2009-10 fiscal year.   
          Programs must ensure that at least 85 percent of the grant  
          funding is allocated to school sites for direct services for  
          pupils. 

          This bill would permit costs relating to a site supervisor to be  
          counted as direct services provided that the supervisor spent at  
          least 85 percent of his or her time at the site.  

          This bill should not result in direct costs to the state, though  
          it may serve to limit direct services in some cases.  











          Author's proposed amendment would make the bill permissive.
