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.
